This race was first run in 1981 and the course was designed by Peter Jebb, who together with his wife Anne, organised the Buckden Fell Race for 20 years. Peter was asked to organise a race by the Buckden Gala committee after winning the Fellsman Hike in 1981. In 1987, Peter altered the route to make the race more interesting and tougher. The course has remained the same ever since and this was the course on which the records were set.

Parking in Buckden is very restricted. Please therefore use the special car park designated for runners and their supporters. There will be a small charge of £2 for the use of the car park, with the proceeds going to the Upper Wharfedale Fell Rescue Association. Please therefore bring a bit of loose change with you as this will be very helpful on the day.
This is a category A race and if warranted by the weather conditions, you will be required to carry full body cover. The decision will be made by the race organiser on the day and will be final. If you have no kit, you will not be allowed to race, so please come prepared.
