The 2nd running of this fund-raising 8.5k hill race, with a total ascent of 402m, from Saddleworth Rangers clubhouse, Greenfield, Greater Manchester. The route is mostly off road and covers narrow paths and uneven terrain, with steep, grassy climbs and descents. Junior Races are also available.

Course Details

The tough, off-road run around Greenfield will take place on Thursday, July 11 and will once again raise funds for the club’s teams.

The senior race will start and finish on Churchill Playing Fields, with the 8.5km route taking runners up towards Pots and Pans, then to Shaw Rocks and over to Alderman’s Hill.

The race route is mostly off road and covers narrow paths and uneven terrain, with steep, grassy climbs and descents. Whilst we do not require competitors to have previous experience of fell racing, we do require that they have some experience of running on this type of terrain.

The course will be partially marked with flags and will be marshalled at key points. However competitors should have the necessary navigational skills to find their way around the course in the prevailing conditions, in expectation of no support. All competitors have primary responsibility for their own safety.

Raceday Logistics

Registration will be at Saddleworth Rangers clubhouse, Shaw Hall Bank Rd, Greenfield, OL3 7LD, from 6pm and then the race starts at 7.30pm.

Kit List

Competitors should arrive at registration fully prepared to carry the following equipment:

    Waterproof whole body cover
    Map and compass suitable for navigating the course
    Whistle
