Ossy Oiks is a great taster fell race. The climb is in two sections not too steep and mainly on tracks. The final descent is steep and through the woods but, there are trees to hand onto ! Most of the course is suitable for trail shoes although I would prefer a fell shoe for the final descent. Click here to see a map of the course.
