The 2024 Cross Fell Race on Sunday 30th June is the 4th running 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-10.45 is at the village hall in scenic Garrigill, which also boasts pub (reopening soon), post office/shop, B&B, garage (no fuel), public toilets and church. Entry on the day allowed (£2 extra).

The fell race is run by local volunteers, all entry fees going to 3 local charities, Garrigill Church, the Village Hall and Greg’s Hut Association (refuge bothy on Cross Fell).

The race route using the Pennine Way and bridle path is fully marshalled and run under FRA rules with runners to carry full body cover (taped seams), hat, gloves, map, compass, whistle.

Refreshments will be provided free to all runners post-race on receipt of bib number. Non-runners will be able to purchase refreshments with funds going to the designated charities.

Cut off time of 12.30 pm will be strictly applied to reaching the 2nd check point; this will also double as the bad weather return point in the case of a severe weather event.
