Burnsall Classic Fell Race & 10 Mile Road Race

Date & Location

Burnsall, Skipton, North Yorkshire

Organiser’s Description

Burnsall, known as one of Yorkshire's prettiest villages, is renowned throughout the world of sport for its Fell Race. As a spectacle, the scene has no equal. The Fell Race is the major event on race day. It is a comparatively recent event; according to tradition it began around 1870. A group of villagers are supposed to have discussed the idea in the Red Lion. The upshot of it was that Tom Weston, a well known local character, tested the course one moonlit night and ran it naked. The race then became an annual fixture.
