Latest news:
Site updated: 10 Dec 2017
2018 race dates - with the new year fast approaching, here are dates for the January local races. Kinder Trial is on Sat, 20 Jan and Lamb's Longer Leg is on Sun, 21 Jan. Both of these races are pre-entry only and details are broadly similar to last year.
  • For Kinder Trial, use a standard FRA entry form and send it (with cheque) to Andy Howie - details as for the 2017 race here. Entries close on Jan 13th if not full before...
  • For Lamb's Leg, use this entry form and send it to Brian Shelmerdine. You'll need to email Brian for his postal address. He will accept payment by cheque or BACS - email for account details. Race details here.
Famous Grouse FR - Sun, 26 Nov - after a snowy Saturday, race day began with some sunshine but this vanished and the rain arrived 2 minutes before the start. There was much cursing and donning of waterproofs and then we were off up Moorland Road which was dry in parts, unlike most of the route which was gloriously muddy. Thanks to Wayne and Rose for putting on this race yet again and thanks to the marshals who had a chilly couple of hours out on the course. Here are the results - thanks to Andy (The Sweeper) Howie for putting these together.
Lantern Pike FR - Sat, 16 Sep - almost 150 turned out for the senior race which was held in good conditions. Simon Bailey was first back and Lauren McNeil was first woman - congratulations to them. Thanks to organiser Jim and all of his helpers. Thanks also to Mel and Jim for organising the many junior races. Here are the senior results and the juniors. Thanks to Jim for sorting these out quickly.

It was a pleasure to see Ricky Wilde and Wade Cooper at the race - they both ran the inaugural Lantern Pike race in 1977. Ricky's race record from that year remained unbroken yet again (hard luck WC, maybe next year!).

Lost property - Jim has a pair of Salomon Xcelerate shoes waiting to be returned to their rightful owner - contact details below.

Hayfield Champs 2017 - it's all over for another year and 30 entrants managed to complete the necessary races to earn their T-shirts. Bryan McKenna and Ali Keates topped the table - well done to them. Thanks, as always, to Andy Howie for organising and here is the final table.
HAYFIELD CHAMPIONSHIP - 2017
The Hayfield Championship is based around fell races held near Hayfield. There are no specific compulsory races but you must complete at least four of the nine races and complete at least one race in each length category (short, medium and long).

  1. Lamb's Longer Leg - Sun, 15th Jan (Short)
  2. Kinder Trial - Sat, 21st Jan (Long)
  3. Kinder Downfall - Sun, 23rd Apr (Medium)
  4. May Queen - Fri, 19th May (Short)
  5. Mount Famine - Sat, 20th May (Short)
  6. Lantern Pike Dash - Sun, 21st May (Short)
  7. Kinder Trog - Sun, 25th Jun (Long)
  8. Cracken Edge - Wed, 2nd Aug (Medium)
  9. Lantern Pike - Sat, 16th Sep (Short)
Entry to the championship costs £8 and you can enter at any race up to and including Cracken Edge. All successful finishers receive a championship T-shirt. Championship scoring is based on the position in each race where the first championship runner scores one point, the second scores two, etc. The winner is the runner with the lowest number of points in their four best races which includes at least one of each length. Prizegiving is at the Lantern Pike race.

All you need to know about entering is on the entry form or for more information contact Andy Howie (see Kinder Trial details below).
