Race Date: Friday 28th June 2019
Tideswell Fell Race is an annual race held during the village’s Wakes Week on a Friday at the end of June. The race has become a firm favourite in the fell racing calendar and attracts a strong field every year. It attracts individual runners and club runners from local villages, Derbyshire and increasingly from many other areas of the country, meaning stiff competition. In spite of this it retains its charm and appeal to amateur runners and more determined serial fell race runners alike. While the race is relatively short (4.5 miles) is has some very steep ascents and descents, rising from a valley to a hilltop ridge and down again.
Things seem to have been tight at the top, with 4 runners from Keswick AC vying for first place, with John Battrick winning in 25.37. First woman back was Jo Hickman Dunne, in 30.50.
121 runners competed, out of which five were Striders who travelled to Tideswell, well done to all.
