Silent Night is the dark festive cousin of Chapelfell Top Race. It is 6.6km with 370m of ascent, run entirely in the dark, on an unmarked route, on rough pathless ground up to the 703m summit of Chapelfell Top above St John’s Chapel, Weardale. Navigation will be required. GPS is not allowed to be used for navigation, but the use of a GPS device to display distance travelled, time, speed or altitude is allowed. Entries will be via SI Entries. You must provide verifiable evidence of completing two events which include off path navigation such as Mountain Marathons, orienteering events or AL Lakeland (or similar) races (trail races/sky races/short fell races won’t be accepted). Kit requirements are extensive and will be strictly enforced. If you aren’t sure if you have enough relevant experience please read no further, this is not a race for people without extensive fell racing experience.

Congratulations to Jonny Malley of Ambleside who won the inaugural night time running of this event. First MV40 was Cees Van Der Land of Tyne Bridge Harriers, First MV50 was John Tollitt of NFR and First MV60 was Ken Maynard of Sunderland Strollers. The prize fund and any other profits will be donated to the David Nelson Memorial Fund, providing and maintaining defibrillators in Weardale. I hope that everyone enjoyed the race, the weather was kind and nobody got lost. Hopefully see you all again next year.
