Top advice to fell runners is stay in a bunkbarn and recce the route before a big race

May 1st 2019

One of the best tips on how to train for the Yorkshire 3 Peaks fell race comes from Victoria Wilkinson, 5 times winner. She suggests you stay in a local bunkbarn for a weekend with a group of running friends and recce the route.

A great place to stay is Gauber Bunk Barn, as the route literally passes the door.  Not only will you avoid the hassle of driving to and from the start, but once you’ve finished your run you are back at your base. What a luxury to have your accommodation, the kitchen (food and drinks!) showers and fresh clothes all waiting for you at the finishing line.
