The Kielder Borderer lives upto it’s Britains Worst Fell Race tagline
Britain’s Worst Fell Race, or as it is known to the locals, The Kielder Borderer, had the weather to match its name. A few inches of wet snow on the ground and a strong & cold wind but not cold enough to freeze the ground so your feet were wet and numb all the way round. Combined with mist that reduced visibility to less than 50 feet for much of the race, everything was coming together for an awful day.
