Ellenborough AC

Ellenborough AC was started in 1958 by Raymond & Mary Thompson. A small running club based in West Cumbria. In 2009 a senior men’s team was put together and introduced Ellenborough AC to the fell running fraternity. Although we run in all forms, it’s fell running where we are mainly associated.

Hello All,

I regret to inform you that the rescheduled Coledale Horseshoe race (24th October) will not take place in 2020 due to continued uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic.
It had been hoped to be able to make the race run in one form or another but the restrictions imposed on organisers make it impossible to make the race 100% safe for competitors, marshals & the general public. Those who had entered are all entitled to a refund, minus the admin/bank transfer fee, which will be repaid into the payees account over the next few weeks.
Sorry to be the bearer of more bad news as the fell race scene gets ever diminished. But hopefully we can get back racing as soon as it is safe to do so.

Stay safe, stay fit & hope to see you all in spring 2021.

& all the Ellenborough AC/Coledale Team

For your info, all monies raised from the race are donated to charity, it is therefore hoped that this year we will be able to make a £400 donation to a chosen charity from last years float.
Last years beneficiaries:
£500 to MIND for Paul Tierney’s Wainwright record run.
£250 to the Just Giving page for Theo Shaw, a local 5 year old who has a rare form of brain cancer.

Kind regards
Nick Ray
