This year's British Athletics Fell & Hill Running Championships is being hosted by Dark Peak Fell Runners. The event will take place on the Howden Moors in the Derwent Valley with spectacular views down to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs.

We’ve secured permission to race in this beautiful and sensitive valley on the strict understanding that our vehicle footprint will be minimal. We want to make this a green and sustainable event with an exceptionally low carbon footprint!  To that end, we have arranged car parking a few miles further down the valley and a fleet of busses to ship you up the valley. Please visit our ‘Parking and Arrival’ page and read the guidance we have posted there; you will be asked to confirm you have read it during the entry process.

Leg 1 (solo),  leg 2 (pairs)  and Leg 4 (solo) will over a mixture of paths and rough fells and will be fully flagged with some mandatory sections and some optional.  Leg 3 (pairs) is the navigation leg which will only be flagged onto and off of the fells from the arena.  Legs 1 and 4 are suitable for over 16s.  Full details on all Legs will be on the route page


The Championship categories for which British Athletics medals are awarded will be given are as follows:

Open men, Open women, Vet 40 men and Vet 40 women.

In addition to these four categories we will also be taking entries and awarding prizes for two other categories:

Vet 50 men and Vet 50 women

To enter a team, a club must be affiliated for fell running with the appropriate UK Athletics body, e.g. England Athletics for England and equivalent organisations for other home countries.  Each team member must be a First Claim member on the fells of the club they are running for and must not have competed for another club on the fells during this year.

Please note V50 runners can run for a V40 team but obviously not the other way round!  An 'Open' team can consist of any runners of any age subject to being Over 18 on Legs 2 and 3 and Over 16 on Legs 1 and 4, but all runners must be of the appropriate sex (e.g. women cannot run in a mens class and v.v.).

If a club with no record at these championships in the last three years wishes to enter a team, the application must provide details of relevant event experience in mountain/fell navigation events of the two runners expected to be on Leg 2, and the two runners expected to run the navigation leg (Leg 3).  If they have competed before, the latest competition year will need to be provided.

Finally, there will be two further classes: an Open NC class, intended for organisations such as university clubs whose team cannot meet first-claim requirements and a Mixed class. Competitors in a Mixed team must comprise three men and three women, drawn from any combination of age categories. They must all be members of the same club and they must meet the first claim requirement.

Please see our entry process page for details about entry acceptance.


Up to 1st September 2019 = £145.00

2nd – 15th September 2019 = £160.00

Costs are per team of six including parking for two cars, transport to/from the arena from parking and post-event meals for all team members.

Dark Peak FR will be distributing a high proportion of any surplus to National Trust, Peak District National Park Authority and other local organisations maintaining the Peak District environment.  If you wish to help, please add a voluntary contribution; options are £10, 20 or £30.
