Hallam Chase Fell Race is the oldest continuously run Fell Race in the world.
This annually run race over a 3¼ mile-long course with 800 feet of climb, organised by Hallamshire Harriers and hosted by Hallam Cricket Club, takes place this Tuesday, 31st May.

Runners return up Coldwell Lane

Runners set off from Hallam Football/Cricket Club’s Sandygate ground at 8pm, go down Coldwell Lane, Den Bank through the Rivelin Valley, and up Tofts Lane to Stannington Church gates, before returning by the same route.

This heritage-related event goes back as far as 1862.

The current record time of 19 minutes 42 seconds was set in 1968 by Trevor Wright.
