Coniston Gullies

Sunday 1 June 2014

Commencing 12 Noon

Coniston Gullies is a brilliant fell race for the fearless fell runner. It may be short in distance, but it has a lung buster of a climb and a tremendous descent which is a sheer drop taking in a scree section. It's a classic up and down race, not for the faint hearted.

Location


Registration at John Ruskin School, Lake Rd, Coniston, Cumbria LA21 8EW
Race start is 10 minute walk away.
Please do not park on the road near to the start/finish as you may cause an obstruction and will jeapordise the running of this race in the future

Additional information

  • Parking will be in the school grounds at John Ruskin School, Lake Road Coniston. Cost of parking will £2 per car, a bargain considering the local car parks are charging £1.80 for an hour.
  • Please do not park on the road up to the Gullies. It makes access difficult for the residents living up the road and makes us and the association very unpopular with them and the locals.
  • Race registration will be in the school grounds and all competitors and spectators MUST walk to the start.
  • Please allow 10-15 minutes to get to the start. The start will now be through the stile at the beginning of the original race route and along the wall.
  • We have tried to preserve the original race routes, but some routes will change to ensure that the original race distances are maintained for the younger junior categories.

  • Please do not climb on the scree slopes during the senior race
