Alderman’s Ascent reaches it’s 5th Birthday this year and will be included in the Fell Runners Association 2021 English Championship Races. A fundraising race for Saddleworth Rangers Youth teams, CraggRunner are proud to help out on this great race.

8.5k race with over 400m of climbing

A classic fell race route. The route visits the iconic 'Pots and Pans' monument before heading out to Shaw Rocks (highest point) before turning back towards Alderman's Hill where the 'fun' begins. A long, technical downhill rewards runners to another long uphill battle to the shoulder of Alderman's Hill and then its a 'pleasant' run back to the finish.

Key times....

  • Well-i-hole campsite Car Park opens at 8.30am
  • Registration at the club house opens at 9am
  • Womens race starts at 11am on Churchill Playing Fields (10 mins walk from the club house)
  • Mens race starts at 1pm on Churchill Playing Fields
  • Presentation back at the club house at 2.30pm

At the clubhouse, there will be food stalls and the bar will be open.  A rugby match is planned from 4pm onwards and live music in the evening so you can make a full day of it!

Classed as an 'AS' race according with FRA rules 

FRA mandatory kit will be decided on the day. It is advised to bring along full kit requirements according to FRA rules.

Unfortunately, we won't be doing Junior races on the day. Please keep an eye on the website for a new date.

Official parking will be at Well-i-hole Farm Campsite (Greenfield, Oldham OL3 7HY). Parking only on the day (small charge so car share as much as possible). No parking at the club and we would discourage street parking in the village.
