Tom and I went to Monsal Head with Southern Wart’s run, we were early and decided to run alone as we had three dogs with us. There was one other wart, a new member who we have seen before but don’t know in the car park, we told him what we were doing, told him to watch the other car park for the rest and we pushed off around 18.35 before the start time 18.50 to do the Thornbridge race route.
Our run round the race route in very different conditions to an August bank holiday was great, we didn’t see a soul.
When we returned, there was Roy who had cycled out and nobody else. We had beers, nobody else was there and nobody else arrived before we left about 9.30
So, not sure what happened, but that’s a poor do for the one person who had a wasted journey if nobody else turned up. It emphasises the problem of various venues being posted on the website, I would have been really pissed off if I had been the only person there.

In another part of the Peak, 16 souls arrived at Doctors Gate. Graham had provided a route and marked up map in advance, which boded well. In the event the areas of frozen snow and the nose-freezing wind meant that we didn't quite get to the first checkpoint at Cabins Clough, and made no attempt at all to go to North Grains cabin at the end. Discretion being the better part of valour, allegedly, we dropped straight from Higher Shelf Stones back to the cars.
