Come and have a go @ fell running routes

Happy faces on the fells

Below are the proposed routes for the “Have a go at fell running”. They’ve been designed to steadily build up your fitness with the final week being a local race in Hebden bridge. You’ll be well looked after by a friendly, encouraging group and you will just love the local footpaths in the valley. You probably never even knew they existed.
