DPFR raceHunter Wreck Race

RO Andy Harmer.  Park on Windy Bank, near Wilkin Hill old outdoor centre, avoiding the Mortimer road.  Slower runners start at 6.45, others at 7.00.  This race has very little climb but some rough ground and indistinct features. Inexperienced warts should very definitely consider running in pairs/groups ... as should the rest of us, if conditions dictate.

Kit: Full waterproof body cover & spare layers for winter mountain weather, head torch with spare batteries or backup torch, whistle, compass & map, & survival / bothy bag all deemed essential.  Not a bad idea to bring a mobile phone too.

Start - fell gate (245926); CP1 - New Cross (rems of, 215927); CP2 - Hunter Wreck (208943, or SK2085594342 to be more precise); CP3 Emlin Trig (240934); Finish at fell gate (245926, as per start).

For reasons known only to Andy, the Dukes Drive is out of bounds east of Flint Hill.  The recommended line back from the wreck follows the 'corridor route', which crosses Hobson Moss Dike (220938) via Tom's 'better than some' ruin (220940), the rocks on Wet Slack and the Wet Slack Ridge.

Club Warts runSportsman

Second in this winter's occasional series of aimless wanderings around Hallam Moors and other places close to the heart of any true club wart ... if we get our act together (Mr Holmes), we may even reveal the likely route in advance just to get the collective excitement flowing.  Don't forget your hip flask.
