Flower Scar Fell Race

Race Update for 2024
For 2024 the race will be a counter in the English Fell Running Championships, consequently the race has been pushed back from its usual February date to Saturday 16th March 2024. There are no Junior races.

Race Details
This is a gem of a race with steep climbs, rough moor and fast paths, typifying all that’s best about South Pennine fell running. Starting close to Todmorden town centre, this race will take you to the parts of Tod that other races don’t reach.
