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.

We encourage participation in local fell races and organise junior races at our own Ilkley Moor fell race. Since 2005 we have presented Phil Dean memorial awards to the first boy and girl Junior Ilkley Harrier finisher in the U11, U13, U15 and U17 age categories and in 2012 we introduced a Junior Fell League.

 

Ilkley Harriers Junior Fell League (2022 - some details tbc)

David and Rachel Holder are in charge of coordinating the league. There are 8 age categories and trophies for U11, U13, U15 and U17 (boys and girls). NEW for 2022 we are introducing an U9 category (min age 6) and individual medals will be given to the first three boys and girls. League points are awarded at each event and at the end of the series awards will be presented to the first 3 finishers providing a minimum number of races have been run. The number of races to count will be confirmed nearer the time but possibly best 6 out of 10 for all age groups.

The 2022 league will run during the summer months to try to encourage new junior fell runners as a gentle introduction. If the Jack Bloor race on Ilkley Moor happens it will be added to the list below.
