The Grisedale Horseshoe Fell Race was established during the 1980's.

Following the death of Derek Price, a past ARCC club Chairman and member of many years standing, the race was renamed The Derek Price Memorial Grisedale Horseshoe

The route is a traditional Fell Race. Participants must decide their own optimum route between the checkpoints.

A misconception often quoted is that we go to Hole in the Wall after St Sunday Crag. This is incorrect. The Hole in the Wall is approx 500 feet (150 metres) higher & 3/4 of a mile (1.2km) in the wrong direction to the finish.
