At Spenborough we are associated with the Fell Runners Association
(FRA), though we only have a small number of fell runners. We would certainly welcome new runners to join our team!
We put out teams in the Calderdale Way Relay (in May), and entries into the Bonny Runs (in April), which is a 3 mile race over Penistone Country Park at Haworth. Other local fell races attended by our team include
- The Cop Hill at Meltham, which is part of the YVAA Championships
- The Denis Stilt Memorial at Holmfirth
- The Yorkshire 3 Peaks (in April)
- Spencers Dash (trail races)
There are Junior competitions for the fells, starting with Under 9 through to Under 19, which take place throughout the year. These usually include gala days and are a good family day out and most are achievable for the average runner. And they are much cheaper than road race entries!
Please contact Jackie Carter for more details about joining in with our Fell Runners.
