Thu 13th Aug 2020 11:59pmDPFR raceTha Sprunce (Race 12 Route 3) TT

The route can be run at any time from the morning of Friday 7th August until the evening of Thursday 13th August, to coincide with Pie Night at The Sportsman. Having run your time trial, send the following information to me either by pm or via email to jim.paxman at blueyonder.co.uk Name, age category, date of run and your race time. I will publish the weekly results and a league table in the Carshare blog and on Facebook, including an age category handicap. The route changes every 4 weeks with the fourth and final route starting on Friday 7th August.

Route 3 starts and finishes outside the club hut at The Sportsman SK 28196 96140 and has just one checkpoint. Depending on your exact route, it may be 4.2 miles (6.7km) with 764’ (233m) of ascent, which would make it a BS. The checkpoint is…

CP1 The Headstone SK 25570 87377 - Please run round it.

Redmires Road to the west of The Three Merry Lads is out of bounds.

Sun 16th Aug 2020 11:59pmDPFR raceFairbrook Round

Visit EITHER of CP1a OR CP1b. Going to both would be excessive, but don't let that stop you. However getting no credit for visiting both, might stop you!

Start: River Ashop foot bridge SK 11431 90160

CP1a Rock on a knoll (of controversial identity) SK 11211 87880

or

CP1b Spot height (of controversial identity) SK 11555 87728

CP2 Gate on the Grindsbrook Clough path SK 11063 87324

CP3 Fairbrook Naze SK 09651 89764

Finish: River Ashop foot bridge SK 11431 90160


The window of opportunity is Monday 10th August to midnight on Sunday 16th August.

As a time trial you may run: solo, as a household group, or with one other runner (whilst ensuring a distance is kept to 2m at all times).
However, please note: you must be self sufficient on the hill. Consider conditions and options for self rescue in the event of an accident.

Carry all that you will need to stay safe. FRA kit is a minimum - but quite possibly short of what you will really need to stay warm if you have to stop running.

Results to "TTResults [at] dpfr.org.uk" by mid-day on Monday 17th.


The race is not suitable for runners younger than 14. Juniors between 14 & 16 must be accompanied by an adult that can keep up with them.

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.
