Fell & Long Distance

STAC promotes running in all its guises and this section of the website has been created in order to encourage Fell, Trail, Adventure and Long Distance (Ultra) running within the club, generate some friendly rivalry and competition and give you all a window into what “other” races are out there.

Race Types

Fell Running – Off road races involving hill climbs (may or may not require navigational skills). Races range from short (2km) blasts to multi day mountain marathons.
Trail Running – Predominately off road races on country trails and tracks, not generally too hilly.

Adventure Races – Off road races with natural or man-made obstacles ranging from 5km to marathon distance. Tough Mudder, Spartan and the Major Series are examples of races.

Long Distance / Ultra Runs – Events of more than marathon distance generally off road.

A great source of general fell running information is the FRA website/
or the Fell Runners Association page on Facebook Facebook
