Fell

Living on the edge of Ilkley Moor you have just got to love the fells. A lot of our coaches and helpers are fell runners so we are familiar with the local fell scene.

We encourage participation in local fell races and organise junior races at our own Ilkley Moor fell race. Since 2005 we have presented Phil Dean memorial awards to the first boy and girl Junior Ilkley Harrier finisher in the U11, U13, U15 and U17 age categories and in 2012 we introduced a Junior Fell League.

 

 

Ilkley Harriers Junior Fell and Cross-Country League (2024/2025 details)

David and Rachel Holder and Emma Barclay are in charge of coordinating the league. There are 8 age categories and trophies for U9 (min age 6 with individual medals given to the first three boys and girls), U11, U13, U15 and U17 (boys and girls). For 2024 we are changing the format to have 20 races - 12 fell and 8 cross-country with the league running from March 2024 to March 2025. League points are awarded at each event and at the end of the series awards will be presented to the first 3 finishers provided a minimum number of races have been raced (number tbc). An individuals best 10 points scored will count (9 for U13, U11 and U9).
