Newlands Valley Fell Races

Cumberland Fell Runners are proud to announce the return of the Newlands Valley Fell Races. As in previous years, eight races will be available. There are two adult races and six junior races on the day from 10:30 to 16:30.

Originally conceived and organised by Steve and Wynn Cliff, these popular races are an established tradition on the racing calendar.

Many familiar faces from Bowland Fell Runners and Bowley Scouts will be coming back to volunteer.
