For those wishing something more above the lactic threshold than the usual road run...

Start and finish at Tha Sportsmen and then visit Rod Moor trig and Headstone in no particular order by any route except via the area marked as out of bounds on the map attached. Do please be supremely careful on the road crossings (A57) and bring a headtorch and FRA kit. Also watch out for the cows in the field below rod moor, they can be a bit frisky.

Josh and Tom have accordingly agreed not to win their own race (or I think thats what they said anyway).

Sat 2nd Feb 2019 9:30amDPFR raceMargery Hill

The quintessential dark peak race. Lovely running in the heart of the peak district, lovely that is, if you like leaping over vegetation.

RO Andy Harmer. This is a long early season winter outing. Although enjoyable it is challenging (and unmarshalled); the race has been run for 32 years and in that time has been shortened, abandoned as well as survived. There is only one unambiguous hazard - Abbey Brook, which can be a trickle or a torrent. If in doubt do not cross, or seek support. Full FRA kit as a minimum, but add extra layers according to conditions - and come prepared to utilise map, compass and whistle as appropriate. All runners must sign in at the start and declared themselves at the finish, even if they've dropped out mid-race. If you hit trouble on the course, generally best to head west for the reservoir path.

There are 2 starts 9am and 9:30am - and anyone expecting to take more than three hours should consider an earlier start at 8:45am.

Start/finish top car park Fairholmes.

Wed 13th Feb 2019 7:00pmOtherUrban Nights Race 5 - The Tipsy Sportsman

For which the calendar, and the club, take no responsibility whatsoever ... 7pm start (or thereabouts) incorporating a somewhat dubious mix of score event and alcohol, and the potential to visit seven pubs in 100 minutes. Starts from Tim Tett's gaff - 68 Roebuck Road - entry fee £1; followed by another BBQ (pre-book or, possibly, BYO). Pre-entry to email or fb page recommended regardless, not least because Tim may provide you with a map of the route if you do so. 5th counter in the Urban Nights Series.

From RO Tim Tett: The Kelham Urban Night Street Race is being repeated this year – full SI courses! For those doing the Urban Nights series it’s also the last in the series with a number of people vying for top spot it should prove an interesting finale. It’s start in the car park behing the the Fat Cat. Courses on offer will be Long (approx 35-40 mins winning time), Medium (approx 25-30) and Short (20-15). As I need to print enough maps please LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE COMING and WHICH COURSE you want to run to guarantee a map. Starts will be from 7 to 7.30pm – remember to bring a headlight. Entry fee £6.

If you want food afterwards ALSO LET ME KNOW. If you order food you will have to pay whether you turn up or not. If you don’t order it’s unlikely you’ll get any! Food will be served between 8.30 and 9pm.

Meat & Potatoe Pie and Peas – approx £5 (tbc)
Veggie option - £5 (tbc)

And as usual there will be lots of nice beer to wash it down with.

Book via fb page or to email

Pairs Race !! I'll team runners up on the night. All runners set off together but when the pair reach the bridge one goes anticlockwise and one clockwise round the loop - till they meet, exchange the baton, turn round and return the way they came. Both team members have to reach Bolsterstone before they are recorded as Finished. Presentation of Cakes in pub afterwards!

Sat 7th Dec 2024 9:30amDPFR raceNorth Grain There and Back

Graham Berry's one-off 70th birthday race was such a gem that the webmaster and calendar agreed in the pub immediately following that we cannot let Graham's 80th pass without a repeat running.  With a winning time on a fine day in December 2014 of 2hrs 15mins, and some stalwarts taking over 3 hours, the 9am start certainly needs retaining for the increasingly more mature.  As to other arrangements - all in good time, folks, all in good time.
