The Club has a growing fell running section with club members taking part in fell races throughout Northern England, including the Calderdale Way relay and British Fell Relay Championships. We also organise the Mickleden Straddle fell race which takes place annually from Langsett Barn on the first Sunday in February each year over a challenging 14.3 mile course with 2400ft of climbing.
For 2020 The Club Fell Championship includes 7 events nominated by Fell Captain Simon Browne; 4 'short’, 2 'medium' and 1 'long'. The first DDAC runner to finish in each short event scores 10 points, the second 9 etc. Medium races will attract 12pts for the winner, working down (11 for 2nd, 10 for 3rd, etc…) and Long races will start at 15pts for the highest placed DDAC runner (14 for 2nd, 13 for 3rd, etc.. ). There is no minimum number of races for qualification so it will just be a straight league table.
In addition to the overall men’s and ladies championship trophies, there are also vets (over 40) and supervets (over 50) categories for both men and women.
