What’s it like?

Starting in the hilltop village of Heptonstall, the route plunges deep into a neighbouring valley before finding its way to the top of a nearby peak. It then returns in similar fashion. So yes, that does mean you finish with an almighty uphill struggle.There’s a right mix of terrain. Cobbles to start with then some grassy fields, muddy slopes, rocky bridleway and open moorland, some of it pathless. Look up occasionally and you’ll get some great views.

The start of the 2012 race…

    Hi guys,

    Looking forward to the Fell Race on Saturday? Just to let you know our pop up massage crew will be at The Heptonstall Festival! We will be delivering short 10 minute massage breaks to the fell runners and festival goers!

    We have a team of fully qualified and insured staff. We used a technique based on a 1500 year old form of Japanese Accupressure called Seated Accupressure in special ergonomically designed massage chairs. It’s designed to give you maximum benefit in the shortest time leaving you feel refreshed and energised.

    Please can you share amongst your networks?

    See you Saturday!
