Thanks for a fantastic 2018 season!
The last fell event of the season is the Run the Moors Grand Prix presentation night on 23rd November at St Mary’s Social Club, Pine Street, Radcliffe, M26 2WQ. Please let me know if you’d like a ticket, the speaker this year is Carol Morgan who has won the Spine race twice and the Dragon’s Back, plus several podium finishes at Fellsman. I’ve heard good things and I’m sure it’ll be a fascinating talk from a gifted sportsperson.

I started running a few years ago to keep fit and lose the developing beer belly, so 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, but as A&T have a fell running champs I decided to turn up to one of the races to give it a try.
It was brilliant, and 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 really cares who wins, you’re not chasing a time 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!
