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 lieu of a physical trophy, each recipient will nominate a charity, to which a donation will be made in their name. – To be updated shortly.

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. Usually we present this based on the actions of an individual or group of individuals during the most recent event. If you know someone who deserves this award for their actions during the 2023 Fellsman please nominate them using the Contact form or emailing the fellsman email account directly.
