Dusk til Dawn - Saturday 29 October 2016

50 miles (80.5 km); 8,858 feet (2,700 m) of ascent

The race started at dusk on Saturday (5:40 pm) at Hope College in Hope and participants initially visited the summit of Lose Hill before passing through Castleton and up Cave Dale along the Limestone Way to Miller's Dale and then Earl Sterndale. After wading through some bogs the route took in Shining Tor, Cats Tor, Windgather Rocks, Taxal Edge and Eccles Pike before the village of Chinley. The last part of the route went via Cracken Edge to Lord's Seat, Mam Tor and Hollins Cross before descending and passing the edge of Castleton back to the finish at Hope. Having run through the night the objective was to finish before dawn or at least in the twilight. There was also the option of a marathon or half marathon route for those not wishing to run throughout most or all of the night.

Starters: Not known (no details available)

Finishers: 65

Retired: Apparently quite a high percentage

First Man: Andy Brooks; MV40; Shelton Striders; 9:15

First Lady: Carol Morgan; joint 3rd overall; FV40; Nidd Valley Striders; 10:09

David Harrison: joint 3rd; MV50; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 10:09

Steven Jones: 55th; MV50; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 14:56

The weather was reasonable with no rain albeit a little bit cold but there was lots of fog and mist and in some parts it was so thick that it was barely possible to see the ground a few paces ahead let alone any landmarks or scenery.
