For those runners who are sick of running on hard paving stones or tarmac, why not try a fell run?  There are quite a number in the next few months, many attached to local country shows.  So you can do your run, visit the beer tent, eat a few cakes and admire the sheep.  Here are the listings from Dave Johnson.  Noreen 

It’s almost local show time which means a load of easy short fell races suitable for anyone, crop up in the calendar over the next two months. Here are some of them

3 August Cock Howe Classic AS 2.5 miles. An evening race on the North Yorks Moors.
