Winter Hill Fell Race

Since 2004 when I started running and racing (for the first time since school) the Winter Hill fell race was a permanent fixture although there are gaps in the photographic record and I missed 2008 because of injury. With its unique atmosphere, demanding terrain and sometimes unkind weather it was a very special race and its absence leaves a big gap in fell running. The reasons for its absence are well documented elsewhere and I am not going to discuss them here – instead I want to take a fond look back over the “Winter Hills” I enjoyed during these few years.
