Dunnerdale Fell Race

Dunnerdale is a classic short race round the tiny but rugged fells between the Lickle and the Duddon valleys. The scenery is superb, the course is tough and varied and there’s a very nice pub at the finish.

Registration is in Broughton Mills village hall (SD222906). The race starts just outside the pub at 12 noon. Full kit is always required.

If the fields are wet then we can only park on the side of the Broughton Mills road. Please arrive early, follow marshals’ instructions and tuck well in. The tractors don’t slow down.

Please note there is a cut off time at the road crossing at Kiln Bank Cross, this time will be confirmed before race day.
