Hayfield Fell Races
This site contains information about fell races held in the Hayfield area - dates of coming races, results of past races, photos and other resources. Most of the information is accessible from this page - scroll down or follow the links below.

Latest news:
Site updated: 25 Mar 2020

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - the latest update from the FRA is that all fell races should be cancelled or postponed until further notice. You should therefore assume that none of the races listed here will go ahead, pending further updates.

That said, the hills are not closed and are an ideal venue for social distancing - so get out there! Look after yourselves, be kind to others and I hope to see you at a race in the not too distant future.

HAYFIELD CHAMPIONSHIP - 2020
The Hayfield Championship is based around fell races held near Hayfield. There are no specific compulsory races but you must complete at least four races and this must include at least one in each length category (short, medium and long).

Entry to the championship costs £10 and all successful finishers receive a championship T-shirt. Entries will close after the Cracken Edge race. 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. Prizegiving is at the Lantern Pike race.
