2018 is an English and British championship race.  The Darren Holloway Memorial Race is one of the toughest Lakeland races in the calendar and makes a fantastic day out over the quiet Buttermere fells. In memory of Pennine Fell Runner Darren Holloway, this race is based on the original Buttermere Horseshoe.

The route is flagged to the fells at Lanthwaite Green, but once on the tops there is much route choice between checkpoints. Descent from Mellbreak is via the col between North and South summit - the route off the North is out of bounds and much slower anyway. Further details are on the CFR website ( 

Much needed refreshments at the end.

Parking: £Free for parking in Loweswater just down from registration (NY143211).

There will be no short race in 2018, back in 2019.
