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.
25 April – Get a feeling about what this fell running thing is all about. Lovely running on the moors.
Route 1: along river > Bell House > Broad Head > Daisy Bank (easiest route this week)
2 May – Going up to the Trig where the photo was taken and you’ll all be this happy too.
Route 2: Redacre Woods > Sheepstones Edge > back to Crow Hill > Down Wicken Hill
