On your marks for Tidza race

Tideswell’s prestigious annual fell race takes place on Friday June 22.

The race takes place over a gruelling 4.5-mile course which ascends 850ft and attracts runners from near and far.

There are various categories of entry for all ages above 16 familiar with fell race runners.

Last year a local winner category was added to encourage more entrants from Tideswell and the surrounding villages.

Runners will compete for exclusive trophy plates hand-made in the village by Chris Jenson, individually marked and glazed, each a collector’s item.

The race helps support Tideswell Youth Cub and last year raised a much needed £290.

Entry is £4 (please bring correct change). Arrive for 7.15pm registration at Tideswell Dale Car Park. Start at 7.45pm from the picnic area. As parking is limited please car share, walk or cycle to the event.
