Fell Captain: Tim Campbell

I started running a few years ago as a means to keep fit and soon joined a local friendly club in Astley & Tyldesley Road Runners.

When I joined I knew about road running and cross country, but I’d never heard of fell running, however A&T have a fell running champs so I decided to turn up to one of the races to give it a try.
Since then I’ve been hooked on the fells – the clean air, the spectacular views and the challenge of beating the varying terrain on the course all appeal to me.
For me, fell running is running in its purest form, nobody cares who wins and you couldn’t find a friendlier, quirkier bunch of people than at a fell race.  There’s always a story to tell afterwards, so give it a go, you won’t know until you try!
