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 Margery hill race has been run for 35 years, and originally after Cranberry Clough it went down the road to West end and up to Alport Castles, a great climb and before the paving stones a great fast finish but the recent route provided a tough return without road.

I …

Andy has published the route for this year's Warts Night Race, starting from Strines Inn at 18:45. And after 35 years he has declared a new route for Margery Hill, which surprisingly doesn't visit the eponymous hill. It goes clockwise instead of anticlockwise so perhaps the worst of the climbs …
