Cancelled - The KMC Annual Fell Race
With the Covid-19 social restrictions, this year’s annual fell race is going to be a little different. We will be holding the event in/from Hayfield, it will be the Sunday only, and we will be using orienteering controls at the checkpoints.
That said, we will be following the usual format for the race, with walkers setting off at 10.30am and the runners at 11am. Groups will be kept to a maximum of 6 and start times will be staggered by 5-10 minutes if needed. The route starts and finishes from Hayfield Countryside Centre Car Park (Station Road, Hayfield, SK22 2ES). The route will be approximately 12 miles; those daring to take a more direct route could shorten it, and those who get lost could lengthen it. You will require the ability to navigate, or to at least follow someone who can. There will be a little less elevation than previous years but we promise the route we’ve chosen is fantastic and it’ll have you exploring the beautiful hills in our backyard.
As always trophies are awarded for 4 categories - the fastest person, the fastest lady, the lottery that is the handicap and best first time effort by a club member.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refreshments after the race. Please bring your own picnic, or there are also local cafes and shops from where you can pick up something to enjoy after the race.
