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. 

It's that time of year when we start thinking about the Edale Skyline, so here is your chance to help on Dark Peak's major event of the year. If you are able to help on Sunday 29th March in any way then please contact Dave Taylor on 0114 258 2193 …

Films and activities on Sat 21st February, details as per the flyer:

There's a renewed attempt to beat the weather and get round the Bradfield boundary. Saturday January 31st. Usual 6am start, and a little more daylight at the back end to get us through the Rivelin woods. Please 'sign up' via the Boundary Run Facebook group if you'd like to come …

There is already a large overlap in membership between Dark Peak and South Yorkshire Orienteers (SYO), but if you are not in that group it's perhaps time to think about whether you might enjoy the physical and mental challenge of orienteering. If you want to give it a try then …
