Windy Hill Fell Race - Runners Information



Windy Hill Fell Race - 16th Feb 2014 - Important Runners Information


This Sunday sees the inaugural running of the Cannonball Windy Hill Fell race. The purpose of this document is to outline a few pointers for the day to make the race as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved. At the time of writing (Thurs 13th Feb) Online places are still available for entry and will remain open until 4pm on Friday the 14th - so if you're not already entered now is the time to stop thinking and get involved!

The Race HQ is at :- 

Rakewood Rd
Hollingworth Lake
OL15 0AP

Registration will be open from 10am & there are 100 parking spaces at the venue. Additional parking for latecomers can be found on the national trust carparks off Rakewood Rd which are just a short walk/jog to HQ.


The first & most prominent point we would like to make is that of Kit. It is the requirement of any runner taking part in this race to bring & carry the full recommended kit as outlined in the FRA safety guidelines. The route whilst well marked on good trails is ran over exposed moorland and conditions can be changeable. Random kit checks will be carried out at registration & also out on the course - any competitor found to not have the correct kit will be disqualified. Remember NO KIT = NO RUN!

Kit List :-

     - Full Waterproof Body Cover, Garments to have Taped seams  Image

     - Hat & Gloves

     - Whistle

     - Compass & Map of the Race Route

     - Emergency Food & Drink

A map of the race route is available to download at our website HERE and we strongly recommend keeping it in an A4 punched pocket or similar to keep it dry.
