Aims of the Hill Running Section.

To promote the sport of Hill/Fell running in the Annan District.

To provide a safe route for anybody wanting to take up the sport.

To provide a varied and competitive championship for local runners.

To help non-competitive runners, those who just want to explore the hills with the company of likeminded others.

To assist sports men and women who want to use hill running to gain strength and endurance for the chosen discipline.


The Ethos of the Hill running section.

We hope to have an emphasis on comradeship between fellow runners and for the experienced to guide and show those of less experience the joys of the hills.

Whether your interest is just in a short summer training run to find out what is up that hill or you are looking to train for one of the big national Ultra Distance Races, there is something in the Hill Section for you.

ADAC Hill Running Championship.

See the Championship section for dates and locations of our Hill races.

New to the Sport?

If you are 18 or 80, male or female it doesn’t matter, you are welcome to come along and join us. Doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are, there’s a hill for everyone. It is being out there that counts.

Hill Running, where there is no shame in even the fittest walking sometimes.
