"Oli Johnson was a real menace".
"Oli Johnson showed Stockport just what they were missing as he ripped his former team apart with a goal, two assists and a shot against the post in front of 2,547 supporters on a freezing afternoon."

Looks like our esteemed runner is doubling up as a footballer, lining up for Guiseley United.
He's certainly kept quiet about this...
Read all about it...  (if anyone can be bothered, that is..)

Stewart Kemp says: "I've entered the Trigger. Now need to sort out logistics. I can drive and offer lifts to Marsden but need someone at Edale willing to take me back to Marsden afterwards (and I expect race will take me about 4hrs 30mins depending on conditions)."

It's a while away yet but anyone who can help with the logistics please talk to Stewart.

With apologies to Carshare for invading his blog, it only seems fair that the whole club (and not just the Facebook cognoscenti) should get to comment on this one.  

We are deeply indebted to both Adi Davis and Jim Fulton for providing the tracks that allow us to pose the questions:

2014-11-21--image.jpg1. which track is Ashley's?

2. is this finally the proof we needed that great fell running minds (Jim and Ashley's) think entirely alike?

3. if 2. is conceded, then how can genetics account for the occasionally inspired variations upon variations upon a route which these two magnificent tracks reveal?

No cheating now; only answers backed up with a plausible explanation can be accepted - so don't just refer to the tracks on the website for your answer. A pint for the best set of answers, in the Carshare comments section below (comments on Facebook also welcome, though these will not qualify for beer).
