Race Report and Results


The 2017 event was hosted by Lancashire Constabulary AC on Wednesday 17 May 2017 starting at 1pm. The route was around 10 miles with over 2500 feet of ascent over the Howgill Fells . The start was from Sedbergh Village Hall, Sedbergh.


Thank you to all those who took part. There were 85 entries with a total of 62 runners on the day completing the course. We were blessed with fine weather and clear conditions throughout the day.


Rob Grantham (Cheshire) was first home in a time of 1:21 with Nina Walkinshaw (Cumbria) first lady in 1:38. The Cumbria team on home turf clearly won both the male and female team prizes. Cheshire were 2nd team and North Wales 3rd.


Thank you to Dennis Nelson who organised the course and also those who assisted with the running of the event on the day.


The 2018 event is provisionally set for Wednesday 16 May 2018. Cheshire have mooted that they may host the 2018 race. This has to be confirmed.

British Police Fell Race 2017 Map

   Description

This years course is over the magnificent Howgill Fells, the whole route mainly on nice grassy paths or trails.

The race starts with a 1/4 mile uphill on a small tarmac road before turning right onto the fell. There are several fairly short but steep ascents and descents throughout the race. There is one long ascent up to White Fell Head after CP1. Magnificent views to be had from Calf Summit through to Winder before descending back into Sedbergh.

Parts of the course will be flagged where necessary to assist navigation. However, much of the route from the Calf is on an easy to follow path that will appeal to the more novice fellrunner.

Thanks to Dennis Nelson (Lancashire) for organizing the course.

  Mapping


Printed A4 maps of the course will be provided. However, you still need to be able to navigate and this should not deter any competitor from taking such equipment as necessary to stay safe on the fells.


  Compulsory Kit Requirement


Competitors will need to carry the following equipment:-


1. Windproof top body cover
2. Map (Provided)
3. Compass and Whistle
4. Suitable footwear for fell running
5. Waterproof full body cover (Only if poor weather conditions)


Each competitor should have navigational skills and be able to use a map and compass if required. Random kit checks will be carried out so please ensure you carry the required kit for the conditions. Any kit found missing will incur a time penalty. Those without the required kit will not be allowed to compete.
