This Is Ingleton
A superb resource of information about Ingleton and the surrounding area. great if you are looking for accommodation close to the Fellsman start!
The Fellsman is a high level traverse covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield in the Yorkshire Dales.
Most of the route is over privately owned land, the use of which is secured by the organisers for the weekend only.

Because of this, only fit and experienced walkers or runners should enter.
