Eskdale Eureka Fell Race 2017
The next race in the Dave Parry Winter Fell Race Series is the Eskdale Eureka on Sunday 3rd December 2017. Entry is £6 on the day only and the registration/Start/ Finish is at the car park above Dibble just on the west side of High Castleton (Grid Ref NZ 680078) , Castleton, Nr Guisborough, North Yorkshire. The race starts at 10.30 am.
The route is about 8 miles with 1500 feet of ascent over moorland paths. There are a lot of single track paths which will be muddy after all the rain so fell shoes or very grippy trail shoes would be best. There are short sections of road and harder paths but, not a lot. It can be very exposed on the moors in winter some come dressed for the weather and carry full body cover as per FRA rules. Click here to see a map of the race route.
