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.
Records: 1988 Colin Donnelly 30:51 / 1993 Carol Greenwood 36:32
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.
Parking in Buckden is very restricted. There will be a special car park for fell runners and their supporters, so please do not obstruct the lanes in and around the village, but use the specially designated car park, for which there will be a small charge. This will be on the road to Hubberholme. The charge will be £3.00 and will go towards enhancing the income from the gala.
The race starts at 2:30 pm
