Fell Racing

I love fell racing, nothing like the pre race prep and looking at the shiny new shoes on the Pete Bland stall. Looking forward to the post race cakes. For more info on fell racing see https://www.fellrunner.org.uk.

This race was the John Hewitt Memorial Shelf Moor Fell Race, staged by the Glossopdale Harriers and 2023 it was one of the designated an English Championship race.

We made this video with a Black Magic 6K, GoPro 10 Black and a Samsung 14. Sadly we didn’t get permission to fly the drone so we utilised some drone footage from the previous year. I love working with lightweight gear although my tripod was far from light! I must rectify that for next time.

I had an 18-135 zoom on the black magic but I feel I need a more capable auto focus system so I would love to upgrade to something like a Canon R5C or Sony A7S III.
