Taking place on the surrounding hills of Hollingworth Lake, The fell runner’s favourite, Windy Hill Fell Race consists of fast trails, runnable fells and one all-mighty, memorable climb. Beginning at Littleborough RUFC, the course immediately opens up into a fast-paced, undulating run before being met with the memorable climb, which shares its namesake with the race, Windy Hill. Once you make your way to the top, you are graced with what can only be described as ‘Highland rock’ with stunning scenery. Now the fun part… A steady, fast-paced 4-5 mile downhill on a rollercoaster-esque trail leading back to the finish.
Please note that you require full Fra Kit to run in this event.

Locations
1)   There will be approximately 80-100 spaces at the actual Rugby Club itself.  This car park is free.   When this is full the marshals stood at number 2 will inform you to park there.   If you arrive later on then its probably best to go for option 2 below.
2)   There are approximately 250 spaces at the Hollingworth Lake Visitor Centre this is a pay and display (very cheap though).  This is just over a 1km from the Rugby Club (HQ) so makes for a nice warm up.
