Sat 7th Feb 2015 9:00amDPFR raceMargery Hill

This is an early season, long, winter outing. Although enjoyable it is challenging; the race has been run for 31 years and in that time has been shortened, abandoned as well as survived. There is only one unambiguous hazard - Abbey Brook, which can be a trickle or a torrent. If in doubt do not cross, or seek support.

It is mandatory to carry map/compass and whistle and care for your fellow man/woman. Otherwise dress accordingly (full FRA kit as a minimum), and be aware of conditions on Margery.

There are 2 starts 9 am and 9:30 - use the club champs as a guide (ie sub 2 hours then go in the chase).
