Fell Races

Fell races have featured at Eskdale Show since 1875 and remain a popular atraction for competitors and spectators alike. The length of the course varies according to the classes and it takes in the fantastic fells surrounding the valley. The start and finish is on the show field - the last challenge bieng a beck (stream) that has to be crossed before the final sprint to the finish. Some competitors choose to spectacularly jump the beck whilst others run through it.
