The High Cup Nick Fell Race

The High Cup Nick Fell Race in 2023 will take place on 25th February (in 2022 it took place on the last Sunday in August because the February date was cancelled as the field used for parking was waterlogged).


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.


Entries are now open for the 2023 race - this link takes you to the entry website.

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.
