If you are interested in taking part in the fell races, at most events, its just a case of turning up, registering, and paying the entry fee--(some of the bigger events do require advance entry though- check first!) not usually much more than 3 to 5- at most races, or as little as 1.20 for the Trunce!
The Trunce is a series of 9 -races held at Oxpring nr Penistone where points can contribute to an overall result, but you can just turn up and do as many as you like Website
The Totley/Tigers series includes the follwing: Tigger Tor, Tigers Todger, Totley Moor, Blackamoor Chase and the Totley Exterminator-- to enter the series, you can register at either the Tigger Tor or the Tigers Todger and pay the fee---4 out of 5 races to count (one of which must be The Exterminator) however, if you don't want to do the series, you can just enter any of the events individually... for further info- see http://www.totleyac.org.uk/race.html or Click here
The Gritstone Series is promoted by 'Accelerate' details will appear on the following Website
IMPORTANT:Please note that for all events, competitors should be prepared to carry any or all of the following:
Waterproof whole body cover with hood, hat + gloves, other body cover appropriate to weather conditions (eg extra clothing), map and compass suitable for navigating the course, whistle, emergency food (on long races)- any other equipment specified by the race organiser
The organiser will specify what must be carried, and failure to produce the required items will mean that you won't be allowed to run.
Most of the races listed here will require nothing to be carried, however, it is always possible that you could be asked to do so, especially in bad weather and its best to be prepared and avoid disappointment.
It would be advisable to invest in a 'bum-bag'or similar to carry these items if required.

Please note- this is my own selection of events in the area, a full list can be obtained by joining the Fell Runners Association- see link below
*So far as I am aware, these details are accurate, however, please consult the FRA handbook/check with the organiser before travelling.


The Fell Runners Association website is a useful source of information and a good place to find any updates to race information:
