    This popular 9K fell race in fantatsic Peak District scenery takes pace next weekend in conjunction with Wincle Fete. Every (senior) runner gets a trout as a prize. There is also a 3K junior race for 10-15 year olds.
    The senior race is filling up fast this year with only 52 places left as of 26 May (race limit this year of 300).

    I can email you a route map if you like. Be prepared to get your feet wet in the river and marshy areas, and there are a a couple of tough hills. Wonderful scenery to enyoy.

    Just to let you know that as of this morning, the Wincle Trout Run Fell Race - taking place this Saturday 2 June - is now fully subscribed.
    Whilst there may be the odd place available on the day through no-shows we would urge runners not to turn up specifically for the race as they are very likely to be disappointed.

    If they wish to come to enjoy the fete and view the many scarecrows dotted around the village, they would be very welcome, of course.

    There are still plenty of places left in the junior race (for 10-15 year olds) and there will be various races for the under 10s at the fete.

    We are naturally very pleased the Trout Race has proved popular again. We don't like turning people away - but 300 runners are as much as the course and organisation can reasonably cope with. We want the runners to have a good time.

    We would be grateful if you could pass this information on to anyone you know who is intending to race but has not yet entered.

    Many thanks for your support.

    Looking forward to this. Forecast is warm and sunny so we'll be able to cool off crossing the river!
    Who else is going?

    Hi Cheese

    This is Mrs Fell Top Teddy. Myself and Mr did this last year. I tend to be at the back but its not particularly tough and I was nowhere near last. I don't recall the pace being any faster than normal!! Its a great race, beautiful scenery plus nice pub at the end, fete, trout etc.

    Re: Wincle Trout

    Did this last year and was a really enjoyable race with a very good turnout. It was in a lovely seeting I had hoped to do it again but have entered the Garburn Trail Race the same day. The Wincle trout race is a week earlier this year I think. Its well worth doing.
