What is Fell Running?

Fell running is also known as hill running and has been established in this country for many centuries. The fell race was often, and still is a part of village fairs and sports galas. This form of running is usually associated with the Lake District and the Grasmere Guides races, but other historic races from the 19th century still take place in the Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire.

Modern races have developed considerably from the early short up and down dashes. Classic races on Snowdon and Ben Nevis, the 24 mile Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales, two day mountain marathons, relays, all add to the great variety of distance and terrain on offer. Indeed, the British Senior Championship is based on a format of short, medium and long races.

The professional side is organised by the British Open Fell Runners Association (BOFRA), which offers excellent short races for younger runners. The amateur sport in England is administered by the Fell Runners Association (FRA), under the overall control of the ruling athletics body (currently U.K. Athletics). There is a thriving junior scene, with over 200 competitors taking part in the FRA Junior Championship of six races.
