Welcome to 'Pike Racers'

A 'tribute' to the finest athletes ever to race the Rivington Pike Fell Race in Horwich, in the county of Lancashire.

The 'Rivington Pike' Fell Race is one of the oldest fell races in todays fell racing calendar. The earliest races date back to the early 1880's, where the challenge of the foot race to the summit of the 'pike' and back, taking in 700ft of ascent and covering over 5km in distance has attracted the very finest athletes ranging from Olympic track runners and Marathoners through to out-and-out fell specialists.

 

This website celebrates the achievements of the 'fastest' athletes over the 'pike' course, where their climbing ability coupled with their perilous descending speed has seen them either lift the coverted title of 'Rivington Pike Fell Race Champion' or figure very highly in this true fell racing 'classic'.

 

Profiling the best athletes to have raced over the Rivington Pike hill has highlighted what a collection of high class athletes the 'pike' race has attracted, and by doing so will hopefully enhance the races reputation further as ''one of THE ''Classic'' must do races on the fell racing calendar.''
