The Grindleford Fell Race takes place over a 4.9miles / 7.9km route starting on the playing fields in the centre of the village. It takes you up through Hay Wood, the Longshore Estate and back down the beautiful Padley Gorge. The celebrated river crossing within site of the finishing line offers excellent spectating opportunities (!).
The route is well marshalled and partially taped.
This race is suitable for newcomers to fell racing and requires no local knowledge or navigational skills. Details here.
From September 2020 there will also be a brand new Junior Fell race open to anybody under the age of 16. Due to current social distancing rules this race will be run virtually over a calendar month. Details here.
