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. 

The spring issue of DPN is on its way to the printers and should arrive on the doormats of fully paid up members at the beginning of May.

Many congratulations to Nicky on lowering her own BG record by 6 minutes on Easter Sunday in a time now confirmed as 18.06. Nicky showed characteristic strength of mind in the face of unseasonally warm weather and a nasty gash to her hand, whilst treating her supporters to a day …

For those with nothing better to do this Easter Sunday, you can enjoy a virtual tour of the BG route, Spinks style, by periodically visiting the tracker site charting her attempt to lower her own BG record by 50 minutes or so, thereby giving her the fastest cumulative time - …
