Help Required - Holme Moss Fell Race


holme-moss-12 0024

The Holme Moss Fell Race is the major fell event hosted by Holmfirth Harriers and its successful running reflects on the club. The race is an approximately 25k / 17mile event stretching from Cartworth Moor Cricket Club to Crowden and back. This race cannot be run without the support of the club in supplying marshals and other helpers. I have attached the Helpers / Marshals Form as it now stands and as you willsee we stillneed a number of additional helpers in a variety of positions.

In Brief we still need:

  • Early birds to help set up on the day 08.00 – 11.00 (2 more)
  • Raffle ticket sellers at Registration 09.00 – 11.00 (1) and 1.00 – Finish (1)
  • Pre Race Flagging Team (Saturday 13th July) to help experienced flaggers flag sections of the route. (as many as offer, say 6) 


  • End of Cartworth Moor Road 11.00 – 11.15 (2)
  • End of Cartworth Moor Road 13.00 – last runner (about 16.30) (1)
  • Gate to Cartworth Peat Pits 11.00 – 11.15 (1)
  • Gate to Cartworth Peat Pits 13.00 – 4.30 (1)
  • Holme Moss 11.15 – 13.30 (2)
  • Holme Moss 13.30 – about 15.30 (last runner) (2)
  • Holme Moss Road Crossing Marshals 10.00 – 13.30 (2)
  • Holme Moss Road Crossing Marshals 13.30 – 3.30 (last runner) (2)
  • Holme Moss drinks Station 11.00 – 13.30 (1)
  • Holme Moss Drinks Station 13.30 – last runner (1)
  • Tooleyshaw 11.30 – Last runner (about 13.30( (2)
  • Bareholm 12.00 – last runner (1 to assist Helen and Ian Pettit)
  • Sweepers (1 or 2) competent fellrunners to jog round allor half the course at the back and ensure no one is left out on the course
  • Recorder of competitors numbers at the finish (1)
  • Kit checkers (1) from 09.00 till 11.00 and 1 from 13.00 – last runner
  • Drinks at finish (1) from 13.00 to last runner
  • Parking 08.30 – 11.00 (2)
  • Catering (2 or 3) 8.30 – 11.00 and the main rush 13.00 – about 16.30

It would also be great if we had extra marshals at some of the points already filled on the sheet such as Holme Moss, Tooleyshaw, Laddow Rocks etc so that in future years we had others who new the job at that point.

Please look at your calendar and if you are not on holiday or otherwise booked then please offer to help at this major event
