Taking place on the surrounding hills of Hollingworth Lake, The fell runner’s favourite, Windy Hill Fell Race consists of fast trails, runnable fells and one all-mighty, memorable climb. Beginning at Littleborough RUFC, the course immediately opens up into a fast paced, undulating run before being met with the memorable climb, which shares it’s namesake with the race, Windy Hill. Once you make your way to the top, you are graced with what can only be described as ‘Highland rock’ with stunning scenery. Now the fun part… A steady, fast paced 4-5 mile downhill on a rollercoaster-esque trail leading back to the finish.
