The Fellsman, the first Ultra Trail Event ?
The Fellsman, now in it’s 51st year, is a high level traverse covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield in the Yorkshire Dales.
Most of the route is over privately owned land, the use of which is secured by the organisers for the weekend only. This being the case, the route does not follow well defined footpaths, so the entrants’ navigational skills with a map and compass are tested as well as their physical fitness. Because of this, only fit and experienced walkers or runners should enter. Click here for more information. This years event is on Saturday. There are some entries on the day if you fancy a challenge this weekend.
