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 meeting will begin at 2pm in the Hathersage Memorial Hall (next to the pool).

There will be a talk from the experts at Centurion Running and the chance to test out la Sportiva shoes, Garmin GPS watches, Leki running poles and Ultimate Direction vests and packs.

As a result of the Club Chair flexing his (dis)organisational muscle to move the dinner and champs to the end of November, together with the rumoured cancellation of Gisborough Tops, I'm calling a last minute change to the final Carshare League fixture, which will now be the Tour of Pendle …

There will be a 3-course dinner at the Burton Street Foundation, Burton Street S6. There will be a bar with Real Ale of our choice and entertainment will be provided by Mill Stone Grit – popular guitar-based rock from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. Their playlist can be found …
