"I thoroughly enjoyed racing the Wansfell Mountain Race. It was a very well organised event with a friendly relaxed atmosphere. I will be recommending this race to fellow fell/trail runners and will definitely return next year!" Sophie N, 2016
"Hi Mountain Run, Just a note to thank you for Saturdays Wansfell Mountain Race. Its a great route and well organised by your team, having fell run all my life I've been doing different races this year and yours is a cracker and will be back next year. Cider is miles better than a medal!!" Gary B, 2018
The fully-marked route of Wansfell Mountain Race will lead you deep into classic fell running territory: with its mix of singletrack, woodland paths and open fell, we’ve packed enough variety into our ‘long 10k’ (it may be closer to 11 …) to satisfy mountain runners of every persuasion. Whether you’re a fell runner; an experienced trail runner or a first-time racer the course is short enough – yet tough enough! – to leave you grinning from ear to ear.
At the front of the field, you’ll need to be a great all-rounder to take the prize: the double ascent of Wansfell has been described as ‘brutal’, but only a top notch descender will take the win. The final switchback chicanes through Jenkin Woods will put your technical skills to the test as you race to the finish line.
Entries will open on the 1st March, and are £20:00 in advance or £25 on the day.
