Off Road Running

Nick Barberis on St Boniface FellThis are of the website covers a wide spectrum of activities, distances and elevation gains/losses:

  • training runs in the local countryside
  • organised fell racing
  • mountain racing in Wales, Scotland, the Alps or further afield
  • ultra running

Groups of members regularly head off to the countryside to do a training run or LDWA event, often making a weekend of it. The club organises a trip to the Isle of Wight each year for the Southern Fell Racing Championships. Many members also take part in mountain races such as the Swiss Alpine (Davos) marathon and ultra races, or Ultra Trail Mont Blanc. The club also has a long history of association with ultra running with many members taking part in all sorts of different long distance events and current and past world record holders amongst our membership.
