Saltwell Harriers Fell Race
Saltwell Harriers Fell Race will take place on Tuesday 5th July 7.30pm start. The race is 5.5 miles long with 1000 feet of ascent. The start registration and finish is on the road side above Crawleyside Bank about 2 miles north of Stanhope on the B6278.
The race route has a mix of everything. There is a bit of hoping through the heather at the start to get to the mast. Then you follow the fence to run past Parkhead Station and cross the road to join the Waskerley way before descending steepy over a grass field to the ‘checkpoint in the river’ then the route follows the river a long to some old mine workings before climbing upto the finish on a bridleway. A fun race with a real mix of terrain. The prize presentation is in the Moorcock Inn which is usually a good do !
