Burbage Nutters

Club races that appear in the calendar are primarily organised for the benefit of our members and are not normally open to non members. It is recommended that non-members who are interested in joining Dark Peak come along to one of our club runs in the first instance.
Date and Time: Saturday 5th January 2019, 10:30am
Event type: DPFR race
Gridref: SK287840
Distance and climb: 8.5mi, 1137ft
League(s): Dark Peak Races League
Notes:

Start 10.30 (also with a slightly earlier start of 10.15 if required)

Yet another running of this classic winter outing around Burbage collecting nuts, assuming I put them out and the squirrels haven't got them first. Details will be announced at the pre-race briefing, whilst possibly listening to The Nutcracker Suite. An extensive array of nut themed trophies for all age categories will be eagerly contested, including the ‘coconut trophies’, the ‘nutcrackers’, the famous ‘testicles on sticks’ and the ‘dinosaur with huge nuts’. Prize giving afterwards in the car park.

Start/finish Porter Clough Car Park 287 840

Checkpoint 1 Houndkirk Hill 284 818 - flat rock on summit.
Checkpoint 2 Higgar Tor 257 821 - small wooden stakes at top of plummet.
Checkpoint 3 Stanedge Pole 246 844 - big sticky-up thing.
Checkpoint 4 Rud Hill Shelter 270842 - fairly obvious, there’s nowt else there.

Rules:-

  • To Houndkirk Hill – no running on roads (sorry Mr Nolan)
  • To Stanedge Pole – do not cut across the sensitive White Path Moss, but continue along Stanage Edge path to wall at 241 844 and then up Long Causeway to the Pole.
  • Return from Rud Hill – via Brown Edge Quarries (not through the farm) and follow path back to stile in wall at 284 842 onto road.
