Friday 25th June – Tideswell Fell Race

A report from Huw Illingworth:

I travelled down to visit some family in Derbyshire and decided to try out their local race, the Tideswell Fell Race, which is a nice low key fell event mostly trail but taking in a short sharp ascent and descent of one of the area’s steep valleys.

Over the 4.4 miles/850ft distance, I found myself in the leading group for the first ten minutes or so (a slightly surreal experience I have to say), before the race started to spread out.

I managed to claw a few places back over the final mile to finish sixth somewhere around the 30 minute mark.

There were 73 runners plus many marshalls and enthusiastic helpers on a very humid but pleasant summer evening. A race I may well return to next year.

Details and results due from tideswellfellrace.
