Youth Mountain Running Festival

A weekend celebration of mountain running,
for youth, by youth

POSTPONED to Sept 2021

Duddon Valley,
Lake District
Price: £50

Sadly due to COVID-19 we have decided to postpone the inaugural YMRF until 2021. We are confident we can build and even bigger and better event for September next year. Thanks everyone for your support and stay tuned for updates.

The Youth Mountain Running Festival is a celebration of mountain running aimed at younger runners, the focus is for 18-25s but we are also open to the young at heart. We are aiming to create an event where young runners can come together to socialise, learn new skills and race in a variety of events over the course of the weekend.

The weekend will be accessible for runners of all abilities. For those less experienced, there will be workshops to improve skills and the option of pairing up with more experienced runners for a day out in the hills. For those more experienced runners, we offer a weekend of competitive running and the opportunity to meet new friends. We hope to build a community of younger runners to inspire and support each other.

YMRF is a Fell Runners Association affiliated event.
