Dark Peak Fell Runners is an athletics club for (mostly) hill & mountain running. The club is based in Sheffield and although the majority of the 300+ membership is local, the famous brown vest has migrated as far New Zealand. The club caters for a wide range of running interests and abilities, from short local races to ultra distance events, with some individuals achieving success in the English and British championships. The club thrives on minimal organisation and if you have a slightly anarchic sense of humour and an appetite to compete in unusual events, you will feel at home with people of a similar disposition. 
Fell running has a culture for individuals to take personal responsibility for safety when out on the hills, as terrain and weather conditions can be severe. Therefore it is expected that you assess your own physical ability, mountain craft skills, clothing and equipment before going for a run. 

Having pored over the FRA calendar Mike Robinson has selected the twelve races that will comprise the 2018 Carshare League. There are four long, four medium and four short races. Points are scored as a percentage of the winner’s time, with your best five scores to count.

They've contacted us to say they're running a survey to …

We have sent emails out to everyone we can to urge them to fill out a membership form for 2018, either online or on paper. It's important that all members complete a form this year, even if no details have changed, because we need your answers to the "Privacy" questions …

Who attempts a solo BG in winter? Stuart Walker does.

Stuart says

"A solo unsupported winter Bob Graham is probably as antisocial as running gets, but it's something I've wanted to have a crack at for a long time. I finally had my opportunity last week and I gave it a decent …
