<![CDATA[Warts Night Race - 23rd January]]> There is a route now for this race, see the calendar, but the relevant information is extracted here:

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.
Andy (Race Organiser)

<![CDATA[Rogaine 1 - Houndkirk on 2019-01-13]]> While there was some small race on in the heart of the dark peak, the main event of the day took place on Houndkirk and Burbage moor. 20 hardy souls turned up to put their navigation and mountain craft to the test. Previous weekends had seen glorious weather while out setting the course, but today the weather didn't disappoint. The weather gods dished up wind and rain, turning an otherwise lovely setting into at murky haze. I took those abandoned children (and mine) up as far as Houndkirk Hill for a vantage point to watch the race unfold which proved challenging so we retreated to the comfort of the cars.

Only 1 person elected to run the linear course so by virtue of completing it wins the honours for the day in a time 1.36.30. Given my aim for the linear course to be shorter than the score course by at least 20 minutes I may have accidentally sand bagged this one as this was the longest run of the day. So a big well done to Ryan Elliot for the win.

The other 19 ran the score course and it was a rather tight affair for the outright win and in the women's race. Jenny pipped Lucy to the win the women's race by 10 points, closely followed by Penny in 3rd. In the overall race Tim Tett edged out a chasing pack of Pete, Simon and Dave by just 20 points, having collected 17 of the 18 controls. I suspect if Pete had made use of his spare 7 minutes he could well have taken the win.

There was definitely a clockwise bias from the competitors on the day. With the challenge being how to gather 2 central controls. Having run it in both directions my planners route (anti clockwise) goes something like this: 8,14,9,18,10,4,11,15,6,12,1,16,5,13,7,3,2,17. The reason for this direction was running between control 1, 16 and 5/7 was easier than 9 (or 5/7) to 16 to 1. While using the faster running of the track to go between 9 and 14 and the track between 4 and 11. Certainly making use of the trods for the faster running was beneficial.

<![CDATA[Burbage Nutters on 2019-01-05]]> This cultured race featured on a tranquil January morning after listening to the Nutcracker suite by Tchaikovsky. Perfect weather for running combined with good conditions under foot led to fast times with the first three home all breaking the course record. The overall winner was Tom Brunt with Jack Foxhall a close 10 sec behind, followed by Tim Rutter. Not sure what Jack was on this year but he beat his previous time by 13 mins! Next to finish were Steve Bell and Dave Taylor in a dead heat, apparently having formed a pact and held hands around the route. More fierce battles obviously occurred over the waste lands of Rud Hill as evidenced by close finishes with Chris Bennett just 1 sec in front of George Yates, and Andy Barnett only 2 sec in front of Ashley Kay.

There were many commendable runs including Penny Collier representing the female fraternity, Keith Holmes enduring a painful pre-operation run and Mike Arundale finishing in a respectable time beating 2hrs. Rob Moore arrived back rather later than expected and from the opposite direction to everyone else, considering it ‘not his finest day’. The RO managed to get to the peanuts but not as far as the chestnuts.

Trophy winners – as decided by the Race Organiser’s good wife:-

  • 1st Tom Brunt Sculptured Nut (superior version)
  • 2nd Jack Foxall Sculptured Nut
  • 3rd Tim Rutter Sculptured Nut
  • 1st F Penny Collier Exotic Nut
  • V40 Steve Bell Nutcracker
  • V40 Dave Taylor Nutcracker
  • V45 George Yates Walnut
  • V50 Mike Bourne Walnut
  • V55 Andy Barnett Walnut
  • V60 Jim Paxman Walnut
  • V65 Dave Arundale Walnut
  • V70 Mick Cochrane Dinosaur with huge nuts
