Thread: Round Hill Fell Race

  1. #1

    Round Hill 29th July

    Went round the course last night and it was slightly boggier than usual - all this rain has made it a bit more fun! Absolutely love that descent from Round Hill, can't wait for the race.

    Sounds promising, my first race on the fells since the winter and I'd be disappointed if I didn't get caked

    nice link euph, like I thought a nice mudbath, looking forward to it especially that nice undulating twisting turning descent that seems to go on for miles...of course you've got to get up there first. !!

    Doing this, it's in our club h/cap.Skyrac. It's fast with no big climbs, does get muddy in parts, feels more like a trail race, nice area, my home turf, you cou;d get away with trail shoes .

    I ran around the course back at the end of April when it was relatively dry but given the recent rain I'd imagine it'll be very wet in parts at the moment, particularly the path descending from the 'summit'. Personally I'd recommend fell shoes.

    There's a course map at http://www.otleyac.co.uk/Round%20Hil.../RoundHill.htm

    I'm probably doing this (not done it before) and might have a trot round some of the course tonight. I'll report back re state of the ground if I do have a run out.

    It is a Strider championship race as well! Starts off on good track before going to a thin path. Two bogs to contend with. First one small, second one before the ascent of Round Hill is a biggie!

    Went up there a couple of weeks ago and it was VERY wet in places.

    If dry then trail shoes are fine, if wet then fell. If unsure then fell.

    The biggie was big and wet this evening! Think I'll most likely do the race and if I do I'll be wearing fell shoes!
