Old Crown Round


The Old Crown Round – Sat 20th Jul 2019 at 11:00 am

Please note that the race is a FELL RACE ONLY, no entry for walkers.(Sorry)

This is an arduous route. There are sections of open fell with no paths and only the first section of the route across farmers fields will be flagged, the rest will not be flagged. Cut off times for checkpoints will apply (although these will be generous), and runners should not enter this race unless they have experience of AL fell races and are confident they can navigate themselves round the race safely.

Route: ROUTE CHOICE is YOUR CHOICE and optimal race lines are for reccing.  A map will be supplied here in due course but the route on the map may not necessarily be the optimal race line. Runners will have a choice of three flagged river crossing points. stream crossing

Northern Fells Running Club are grateful to the The Old Crown Pub for hosting the event, and a limited menu will be available to order in the afternoon, as well as plentiful beer on supply at the bar.
