At a Glance:

Fell and road alternating relay race. Be warned - the road is probably harder than the fell race. Great team event with lots of team categories.

  • HQ: Cross Keys pub, Uppermill
  • Start Time: 1pm
  • Cost: £10 for team of four
  • Distance: 3 miles (road) and 2.5 miles (fell)
  • Terrain: Fell (mainly footpaths with some tarmac)


This is a fantastic fun event and right on our doorstep. Run from the Cross Keys Inn, Pobgreen, near Saddleworth, OL3 6LW, usually on the 2nd  or 3rd Saturday in September. The race consists of 4 legs – road, fell, road, fell, the road legs being 3 miles (2 laps) and the fell about 2 ½ miles (1lap). Both road and fell legs include steep climbs and steepish descents.

We can enter as many teams, on the day, as we can get runners to fill, so everyone is welcome and while we have won both the open and Vets categories on many occasions just being there is a great experience, cheering everybody on no matter if they are first or last.

Road and fell sections combine to compete in this club vs club event.
