The Coiners fell race is a very special event where my fell running journey began 2 years ago. To be honest, I never even knew the sport existed until a friend asked me if I fancied trying the race midway through the fell season. From the moment the starter’s horn went I was hooked. I didn’t do very well but still I loved every minute of it.

Not an English Championship race this time so it didn’t attract as many runners, but I still wanted to do well and there were still faces I recognised from other races.
The race was different this year as all U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 runners…
