Lothersdale Show Fell Race is one of the oldest fell races still in existence, being first run in 1847. It is probably one of the few fell races left where both young and old run together. The race starts in the road by the show field and goes past the school until it turns sharp right up Sidegate Lane. A short distance up the lane, there is a track on the left. Climb a fence by this track and bear right up the ridge to the summit of Town Edge. From the summit there is a steep descent back down to cross Sidegate Lane. Then a steep drop over a wall before returning through the fields to climb the wall and run back up the road, towards the show field.
