Fell

Living on the edge of Ilkley Moor you have just got to love the fells. A lot of our coaches and helpers are fell runners so we are familiar with the local fell scene.

Kim Anderson has written this brilliant piece about fell running, and why everyone should have a go. Read it here.

We encourage participation in local fell races and we organise junior races at our own Ilkley Moor fell race in February. Since 2005 we have presented Phil Dean memorial awards to the first boy and girl Junior Ilkley Harrier finisher in the U10 (U11), U12 (U13), U14 (U15) and U16 (U17) age category (presented at the end of March at the annual junior presentation evening). And in 2012 we introduced a Junior Fell League.
