The High Cup Nick Fell Race

The High Cup Nick Fell Race in 2024 took place on 24th February.


The Race is organised by Morgan Donnelly in conjunction with the Village Hall. The Hall acts as a base and check-in. Post-race refreshments are provided by the Village Community and a number of villagers act as marshals and help manage the car-parking. Around 500 runners usually enter the Race. The route of the race is available on this external link. Please note that some of the route crosses private land, which is used with the permission of farmers.

This year the weather was kind, which meant the field used for parking coped with 250 cars and 414 runners completed the course. Thanks to the many volunteers who helped by providing soup and cake and to marshals, car park and kitchen volunteers and many others who helped behind the scenes.

Many day-visitors come to Dufton to climb up to High Cup Nick, a spectacular amphitheatre of volcanic rock about 3 miles from Dufton along the southern leg of the Pennine Way.
