Take pot luck as to whether anyone else will be at the Tha Sportsman, argue about whether to run on the roads or the fells, or do it yourself.  Happy Xmas from the Calendar!

OtherCafe and beer run **plus alternative

As per the last 2 years there will be a run from Sheffield over to Grindleford Station Cafe for Breakfast. We will convene at Hunters Bar roundabout around 8.45 and run up Porter Clough, through the Quarries, Ox Stones, across t’ moors to green drive in Burbage Valley and down Padley Gorge to arrive at the Cafe around 10.30. People can meet the pack at any point and join in. Following breakfast we will catch the train back at 11:49 into Sheffield for a few Beers at the Sheffield Tap (pub at the station) where others can join us. There are a few people walking over, some possibly on bikes, for breakfast at the Cafe and others meeting at the Tap for some alcoholic beverages. The more who come along the merrier!!

There will be an alternative run on the occasion of Graham Berry's actual 70th birthday - start from Cutthroat bridge at 8.00 for a dash round the Derwent Moors for ~ 1hr 45mins.

DPFR raceBoxing Day Bogtrot

Register in lay-by at top of Lady Canning's Plantation by 10:15 am (ten minutes slow walk to start).  Start at Oxstones (GR) SK 27934 83127 at 10:30 am.  Full FRA kit strongly recommended.  Further route notes from Roy Small, RO, in due course ... I think.  Always a fine way to blow away the Xmas cobwebs, and always a fine spread at Roy's afterwards.

Club runBradfield Boundary Run

Start/finish Loxley School at 6am, for the 21st anniversary running of the Bradfield Boundary Run - a peculiarly perverse Dark Peak gem.  Aim to pitch up by 5.45am so you can get your kit loaded in the support van and cough up your petrol and scran money (£15 last year; Dave H to confirm nearer the time).  If you're planning to join in the fun, for part or whole of the day, please email Dave Holmes in advance so he knows how many to cater for.  Expect all manner of jammy sarnies and hot liquids at the support points, and fine soup and novelty home-brewed ale at Dave's pad afterwards; just don't expect to have enough energy left to drink more than a couple of pints at journey's end.  For a taste of what's gone before, see the Facebook site here.  Always a grand day out with friends.
