Heptenstall Fell Race 6Th June 2019

Starting in the hilltop village of Heptonstall, the route plunges deep into a neighbouring valley before finding its way to the top of a nearby peak. It then returns in similar fashion. So yes, that does mean you finish with an almighty uphill struggle.There’s a right mix of terrain. Cobbles to start with then some grassy fields, muddy slopes, rocky bridleway and open moorland, some of it pathless.

Featuring over 1600 feet of climbing over 5.9 miles make this category ‘A’ fell race one of toughest locally.

Well done to andy Smith and Ben Clare for taking it on.

46th Ben Clare 66:43

95th Andy Smith 91:22

Well done lads.
