The Outside Winter Race Series header

Welcome to the 2023/24 Outside Winter Race Series, supported by Rab

Derbyshire's Hope Valley is home to some of the best fell races in the UK. This winter, Outside and Rab have come together to support five races whose proceeds help to fund their local schools and charities. Together the races make up the Outside Winter Race Series.

Male and female winners from each race/age category will win prizes from Outside and Rab, and the fastest male and female runners who have completed all five races will bag a Rab Kinetic Ultra jacket to make their cold weather running a breeze!

 The five races are:

Hathersage Night Fell Race 15th November 2023 8km 300m
Baslow Bolt 25th November 2023 12km 400m
Hathersage Hibernator 21st January 2024 (TBC) TBC TBC
Winter Half Tour of Bradwell TBC February 2024 28km 1200m
Grindleford Gallop 16th March 2024 34km 900m

  • Outside and Rab will provide male and female winner’s prizes for each age group, as well as overall prizes for the 2023/24 Outside Winter Fell Race Series Champion.
  • The 2023/24 Outside Winter Race Series Champions will be the fastest male and female runners who have completed all 5 races (with a minimum of 2 races needed in order to qualify for the overall champion title).
  • Each race has a Fell Running Association (FRA) license and therefore each organiser follows the rules laid down by that organisation. Please follow their instructions. If you have any doubts – ask!
  • Watch this space and for updates on our winners after each race. Our thanks go to Rab for supporting us, and we hope you enjoy the series!
