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.

We're …

All 500 places in the race filled very quickly, and by 11 o’clock entrants were being placed on a waiting list. So please let us know as soon as possible if you find you are unable to run so that we can offer your place to someone else. Email email

I am reliably informed that on a trial basis a V60 Team category (3 to count) will be included in this years English championship. If we can prove that this class is competitive i.e. 4 teams/race then this will become a compulsory item in 2019.

With Edale being the first …

Greg Rimmer is organising the Half Tour on 10th Feb and notes that whilst entries are looking healthy, Dark Peakers are 'looking a little thin on the ground' ... so do get your entry off this week.

Greg is also looking for a couple of volunteers to assist on the day …
