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.
This year, it will be an FRA championship race and will be pre-entry. Entry details will appear here shortly.
Parking in Buckden is very restricted. Please therefore use the special car park designated for runners and their supports. 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.
Please do not obstruct the roads in and around the village. In addition to the designated car park, there is also a very restricted Council car park where the charges will be much higher. There is a short walk from the designated car park to the gala field.
The ladies' race starts at 1:00pm followed by the men's race at 2:30 pm.
