Duddon Valley Fell Race
2018 Race Saturday June 2nd
The long Duddon is a classic race covering 18 miles around the head of the Duddon Valley with 6000ft of climb over Harter, Hardknott, Little Stand, Swirl How, Dow Crag, White Pike and Caw. The short Duddon is an 10 mile race with 3000 feet of climb up Dow and Caw. Both are category A fell races so navigational ability, proper kit and some idea of what you’re doing are all essential.
The short race can be entered in Seathwaite Parish Room from 9.15 on the day but this year you must use the entry form to pre-enter the long race. We also have a description of the routes and checkpoints that is no substitute for a decent recce, results and photos from previous years, some frequently-asked questions and a word from our sponsors.
