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:
Wednesday 23rd January 2019, 7:00pm
Event type: DPFR race
Distance and climb: 7.2km, 480m
League(s): Dark Peak Races League
Start/finish Fairhholmes lower car park
Slow runners at 6:40, rest at 7pm.
- Cp1 Sheepfold in Deep Clough by stream at 185898 (on 1:25k but not on my - admittedly old - Harvey's Map)
- Cp2 concrete block house by spring at 204908
- Cp3 start of Far Deep Clough stream as it crosses the track at 192908. Spot height 455
- CP4 wall corner west end of copse at 181903
Drinks afterwards in the Anglers rest at Bamford.
Expected winning time of around 60 minutes, all back in 100 (an optimistic Cap'n Harmer says).
Unless competent run in pairs of groups! And in doubt /lost head west to reach Ladybower /Derwent reservoirs, try to be back by 8:30.
In the event of very inclement weather a shorter route taking in the cakes of bread and missing out the block house might be declared.
