The 2019 Cross Fell Race on Sunday 30th June is the first anniversary of this FRA race, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Race starts 11am, the eminently runnable route of 24Km with 680m of climb is a lasso taking in the summit of Cross Fell (the highest Pennine peak) and the source of the Tees, with stunning 360 degree views over the spine of England above Eden Valley with the Lake District and Scotland beyond. Race HQ and registration from 9am is at the village hall in scenic Garrigill, which also boasts pub, post office/shop, B&B, garage, public toilets and church.

The fell race is run by local volunteers, all entry fees going to local charities, which this year are the Garrigill Church, Village Hall and Greg’s Hut Association (refuge bothy on Cross Fell).

Parking will be directed by marshals on the day, strictly no parking on the village green or in front of residents homes please.

The race route using the Pennine Way and bridle path is fully marshalled and run under FRA rules with usual kit requirements, sorry no dogs; minimum age for entry is 18yo on the day of the race. Entry fee is £8 through SiEntries and £10 on the day. This includes a gradely spread of sandwiches and cakes with hot and cold drinks post-race in the village hall. Prizes will be given at 3pm to winners of each age category and teams of 3 runners for both men and women.
