The Bear Grylls Award is awarded by the Committee to the young helper/team who showed great dedication in helping on the event. In 2022, this award was presented to Megan and Thomas of Keighley Network.

The John O’Connell Award for Outstanding Services to the Fellsman. This award was first presented in 2011 in memory of former Fellsman organiser John O’Connell. In 2022 the Fellsman Committee have taken the decision to present this award to a number of teams and individuals for their dedication and services to the Fellsman, in some cases for over 40 years. In lieu of a physical trophy, each recipient will nominate a charity, to which a donation will be made in their name.

Firstly, this year sees the retirement of a team of volunteers who have manned various checkpoints on the event since the 70’s but for many years they have greeted you at the highest, windiest and most remote roadside checkpoint on the event – the Hobblers Inn – with shelter, hots drinks, and a mean bean stew. The Fleet Moss Checkpoint Team are, I’m sure entrants will agree, very worthy recipients of this award, and they will be missed.

We would also like to recognise the invaluable contribution made by the Fellsman Safety team, individuals who most of you will never see, as they perform critical duties providing sweeps between the checkpoints to ensure that all entrants are safely off the hills and checking information recorded at each checkpoint to ensure everyone has been accounted for. This year John Kirk, the long-standing lead of Yorkshire Sweep Team made the difficult decision to retire from the event, although we are pleased to say that he has left his sweep duties in the very safe hands of his son, Iain. Likewise, our rear safety check team, Paul Hughes and John Monkiewicz have also taken the decision to retire after many years of incredible service to the event handing over the reins to a new team. Finally, we would like to recognise a current member of West Midlands Sweep Team, Martin Ramsey, who continues to support this event every year providing much valued experience and advice to both new members of the safety team and the Fellsman committee.

The Mike Wooding Memorial Trophy is normally a nominated award given to an individual entrant or support volunteer who typifies Mike’s love for the challenge of the Fellsman and who has performed something exceptional and noteworthy during the event. However in 2022 the Fellsman Committee have taken the decision to award this trophy to all those Fellsman entrants and volunteers we have lost since the 2019 event – individuals who loved the Fellsman and couldn’t wait to be back on the fells with us:

  • Terry Butterworth
  • Colin Banks
  • Mandy Ramsey

I know there will be others, who we have not named, that should join this list. This award is also for them. Please let us know if you know of someone we should add.
