Put HEPTONSTALL in your 2012 diary; a great introduction to fell running across the moors and valleys of Bronte Country.

18th March 2012 - 15miles 3200feet climb - see you there???


 Organisers are planning recces - would you like a guided run of the route????

Should be there too hopefully,as its a good trainer for the Three Peaks(if I get in),Hebden 22 first long race/run,21st Jan.

Just entered the 3 Peaks - see you there!

Fancy doing the Trog too?

I`m in too - Yey! Now lets see if I can do a little better than `barely finish`

I`d looked at the Full trog,but I`m in at Liversedge half that weekend,although I did the half trog last year,which was a good scenic run,but bog trotting for so long isn`t my idea of a good fell run.

Date for your diaries; Sunday MARCH 17th 2013 - the date of 2013 Heptonstall Fell Race. See you there???

Considering it as my first forray into the world of Fell Racing, or is that just completely stupid...?

Iain - good to hear from you. Apologies for the delayed response!

If you are regular and confident half marathon /marathon runner this race would be highly recommended as a first fell race; Heptonstall Fell Race is well flagged (apart from one section)  A map and compass is compulsory (as are hat, gloves, and full wind/shower proof body cover) but you'll only be resorting to the map if you lose touch with the more experienced runners who make up the majority of the field; the regular fell runners will be running at a variety of paces so unless you are planning to be in the top 10% you should find you always have company. The compulsory gear will normally be carried in a bum bag unless the weather turns nasty. I suggest including a small water bottle and a few gels.

Heptonstall Fell Race is a great excuse for a weekend away; Hebden Bridge and Heptonstall are well worth a visit, and the local landscape is spectacular;  full of vast moors and hidden valleys. Most of all you'll find the local fell runners are a welcoming bunch so you'll be making new friends and downing many pints...

Hope you can join us on March 17th!

Steve (Race Organiser)
