<![CDATA[Dark Peak Fell Runners]]> <![CDATA[Edale Skyline - volunteers still needed]]> This year the Don Morrison Memorial Edale Skyline race will be held on Sunday 22nd March.

We sent out an email at the beginning of the month asking for volunteers, and Mark's spreadsheet is slowly filling up, but as always there are still a significant number of places to fill. So if you can help but have not already contacted Mark please see the details below...
...For 2020 Mark Jones is coordinating the volunteers, and he has put together a Google form which everyone can access, and which should make the whole process quite straightforward. So if you can help please go to the form at https://forms.gle/ncPBJzYkigKcB3kg7 and fill in your details; you can also use the form to tell Mark what your preferred role is. If you need to contact Mark directly then please email him at m.r.jones@sheffield.ac.uk
Just a note for anyone hoping to run this year, it's possible to help with car parking and still run the race!

<![CDATA[Early notice (or perhaps warning) from Andy Harmer]]> The Olympic race route, also known as the Blackden Beast, is now open for the coming summer. Date to be confirmed but late July / early August likely.

The route will be the same as in 2012 and 2016, with the record held by Tim Rutter in 62 minutes.
Only a select group of 21/22 runners have previously taken part, and it is a tough course with no flat ground and lots of climbing and descent and tussocks in abundance. Graham and myself survived gales and very slippy descents, to verify the route, and post a steady 1:50
Andy.

<![CDATA[Margery Hill on 2020-02-01]]> There were 6 starts ! for this race, which planned not to go to Margery Hill, as opposed to the several times that the weather led to a shortened race. Despite rumblings about the change of route, after the event it received good press.
Due to a clash with the first aid training both Tom W and Tom S posted pre race times, the former the day before which accounts for a much slower time and Tom S made an excuse ! that he had used a torch for the run, setting off at 6-30 am, great committment from those 2 to the race and the training.
As for the race Simon Mills once again excelled pushing Tom B all the way, with Rich Hunt close by. Dave did a solo run, starting well behind everyone and recording a very respectable solo time.
With the severe wind it was very hard coming back and all starters made the finish line. Although there was talk of a short course, the times suggest it was only about 20 minutes quicker.
Well done all a grand outing, and especially to those who did the night race a few days ago.
Next year, we shall see it could be the recent Margery or a slight tweak of today's route.

<![CDATA[Warts' Night Race on 2020-01-29]]> On a very fresh evening with a strong westerly wind a high quality field sped away from the start and fairly soon different routes were taken to climb out of the first stream on the way to the Foulstone track.The descent to the wall was quite rough and the climb back longer than expected before the dark shapes of the Cakes directed us back, via several different lines, back to the pub .

Well done Tom for holding off a group not far behind,with Simon Mills continuing to run strong
Another Tom to excell was young Westgate who ,having finished 2nd in the North Grain race is now making up for his year out. Good to see Ash back on the fells .
Although a shortish outing it worked well and on a misty night could have offered even further variations !
