Held in May, The Old County Tops Fell Race covers 37 miles and involves around 10,000 feet of ascent.

The exact distance and amount of ascent are dependant on the route you choose!

The Race starts in Great Langdale and takes in the tops of HelvellynScafell Pike  and Coniston before returning to Great Langdale, after which the competitors are fed and watered.

The race was first held in 1988, following a test year involving a few Achille Ratti members in 1987.
