A popular fell race is making a return.

Organisers of the annual Glendale Show in Northumberland have announced that the race will be returning to the event’s line up following a break of several years.

The race will take place at the show near Wooler on August Bank Holiday Monday.

Race organiser Bruce Crombie said: “We are very excited with the resurrection of the Glendale Show Fell Run.

“It is years since it has been held as part of Glendale Show however it is still remembered as being one of the foremost fell races in the Northern half of the country.

“We are expecting a considerable amount of interest.”

Rachael Tait, secretary of the Glendale Agricultural Society, added: “Glendale has always been hugely popular with fell runners and we are delighted to bring this very exciting race back to be an integral part of the 2013 show and hopefully future shows for years to come. 

“The buzz around it has just been fantastic for the show.”

The race begins at 1pm and there is a total prize fund of £500.

 Runners aged 15 and under will run a three mile course and adults five miles.
