Boulsworth Fell Race was resurrected in 2010 after a few years' absence. The present route differs slightly from that used in previous incarnations, and there is a short section that passes over private ground (which must not be used on recce runs prior to the event). The race coincides with the popular Trawden Agricultural Show and has a grandstand start in the heart of the main show ground. There's a great post-race atmosphere with a selection of homemade treats on offer while awaiting the presentation of awards.
The route passes through farmland on the way to and from the foot of Boulsworth, with the middle section consisting of a clockwise loop over the wide and boggy plateau, which provides an opportunity for some proper muddy Pennine fell running! NOTE: Since 2015 the race route no longer visits the summit of Boulsworth, and the section between 1 and 2 miles (outbound) or 4 and 5 miles (return) is on private land and should not be reccied.
