Welcome to Dark Peak Fell Runners

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. 

Just a few reminders about the race on Sunday:

remember the clocks go forward overnight!you will need to satisfy the kit check before you can register, so bring all your kit from the car parkfor reasons of safety we are issuing hired dibbers to all runners, no need to bring yours …

Dave Taylor is still looking for 2 or 3 people to sweep the second half of the race this Sunday (that's from Mam Nick to the end). So if you fancy a good day out then get in touch at email asap.

The race is full, and we are no longer taking entries to place on the waiting list. We are accepting cancellations until the end of today (Monday 23rd), which will trigger a refund, after that no more changes will be allowed.

Just had a call from Janet Wilson at the 3Ps. She's trying to confirm that the trophies - Vet's Team and Men's Team - are in our possession. If you have either or both give me a call and I can phone her back.
