Great Whernside Fell Race 2013

The Great Whernside Fell race Photos can be seen on http://racingsnakes.com./Great_Whernside_fell_race.php.  The great Whernside feel race starts at 11:30am on Saturday 26 October 2013 from the old campsite in Kettlewell.  Photographs of the race will be available soon after the race.  Kettlewell is a pretty village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  The race route of the Great Whernside fell race leaves the old campsite and heads up for a steep start, this gets slightly easier for a while and heads up to summit Great Whernside. (not to be confused with Whernside – one of the Yorkshire three peaks).  The fell runners descend at breakneck speeds and it is great spectators sport.  Although this is a short race of 4miles, the route ascends (and descends) nearly 1600ft of climb with mixed terrain for the runners to cope with. There is a mix of good short grass fields, slippery rocks and boggy marshes which captures out more than the odd runner out.

Whernside fell raceThe fell race is usually quite well attended and the fastest runners can make short work of the course in just over half an hour. The organiser for this race Pete Jebb.  Say hello if your at the race and I will certainly be trying to capture your best side for that great photo.
