Nothing like as tough as the nearby Tebay race, run the day before, the South
Stainmore provides a good excuse for extending the traditional mid summer visit to the Lakes.
The calendar quotes a precise sounding 654ft of climb for this out and back 5 mile race. Unfortunately, whoever, spent their time accurately measuring the climb from the valley floor to the summit of Snape, forgot that this is a 300ft descent to the valley floor before the climb starts... and therefore the same to be climbed in the last mile of the race!
The fell race is secondary to an evening of grass track motor bike racing, with the start, finish and registration in the centre of the circuit (dodge the bikes to register!). However, they do suspend the bike racing for the start and finish of the race!
