Arnison Crag Horseshoe Senior Fell
Our fell race is a scenic & challenging race with 1000 ft of climbing (and descending!). The three mile course is run on grassy tracks, involves a bit of “hands on rock” near the top of Arnison Crag and has a ast, rocky descent. Spectators have a good view of the runners on the skyline on the approach to Arnison Crag and on the final descent into the field. The course was changed in 2009 and the current record is 22 minutes 30 seconds and was set by Rhys Findlay-Robinson of Dark Peak Club, this was a new record set in 2014, knocking more than a minute off the previous record of 23 minutes 56 seconds.
