Packs and Peaks 3: Fell Running

Get lost in the endurance sport of Fell Running by explaining how it works, what gear you need, and where you can go to get lost racing it.

What the heck is Fell Running?

As endurance sports go, Fell Running is about as easy as it comes. First, you run to the top of a hill. Then, when you reach the top, you run back down. The first one to run up and down the hill wins.

See, simple.

Or is it?

Why do Fell Running?

Who doesn’t like hills? It seems like throughout human history, there have been people who ask “who can run up the hill the fastest”. Fell Running is no different than any other kind of running with one very important exception -- elevation. Elevation makes Fell Running what it is because anyone can run on flat, even terrain. It’s when you add a big hill into the mix, that you have the attraction to Fell Running. And not to be left out of this is the changes we Americans make to any popular endurance sport that comes out of Europe. We take it and make it our own. So what has Fell Running become in the United States? That's right -- Mountain Running! Leave to us Americans to make everything bigger. So when you come to America, remember -- We don't Fell, we Mountain!

And that is the endurance sport of Fell Running.

Time to go find some hills... or... mountains to run!
