Hutton Roof Fell Race

Race Date: Saturday, 25/05/2019
Race Distance: 7 Miles

After Henry wrote such a glowing review last year, this race was added to my “to do” list given it is only about 20 mins from my parents’ place. It is a tiny village fair in Cumbria, with a well supported fell race attached. There were 172 runners in the Senior race, ranging from fell racing stars (Victoria Wilkinson ran and came third overall) to southern softies like me. The race takes you over Hutton Roof Crags and Farleton Fell, with a couple of fairly steep ascents. Advertised as 7 miles and 390m of ascent. I was pleased to come in as sixth lady, and even more pleased when I spotted the vast array of cakes in the village hall afterwards!!
