<![CDATA[Dark Peak Fell Runners]]> <![CDATA[Summer Series (11) on 2018-08-20]]> The eleventh race in the 2018 Summer Series was Pike Lowe Direct with 20 runners turning up for this not so fast rough route. But with Pete Davies and Ralph Simpson battling it out for first there was never going to be any bonus's for anyone else!

So the next and last race is Monday 17th September (after I get back from doing the Ultra Tour Monta Rosa). It's from the Strines - starting down the road at Foulstone Delf at the earlier time of 6.30pm.

I have put the race route up - but there are two obvious routes and for one you would have to negotiate a fence on the roadside. Please do not do this on reccies but use the Foulstone access or the gate marked Private further along the road. This is important as the gamekeeper has kindly offered me this route onto the moors and I don't want to abuse it!

<![CDATA[Bole Hills Bad Boy on 2018-08-08]]> The second running of the Bole Hills Bad Boy saw the record smashed by 6 minutes. Tom confided in me that he was only planning on jogging round! May be he legged it because Richard was hot on his heels, beating his own time by just under 9 minutes. This was the year of glamorous couples with the event being augmented by the performances of Fawcett/Mills and Kent/Capleton.Thanks again to Martin Payne for marshalling and first aid (not required) at Houndkirk. I am toying with the idea of making this a Saturday morning event (followed by lunch in The Sportsman) and adding the Bole Hill at Ringinglow but this would involve negotiating access permissions and perhaps some negotiations with calendar.

<![CDATA[Longshaw Sheepdog Trial race - helpers needed]]>

Kris is looking for volunteers to help out with the Longshaw Sheepdog Trials Fell Race on Saturday 1st September. Helpers are needed for the usual roles (registration, marshaling, sweep, finish line and results). Race details including route map available at (https://www.dpfr.org.uk/pages/view/longshaw-sheepdog-trials). If you have a particular role or marshaling spot in mind then please get in touch! You can either drop Kris a line at (k.m.groom@sheffield.ac.uk) or via Facebook or simply give him a shout at a run or in the pub with your preferred role (if any). All volunteers, old hands and new blood, are most welcome. Note that volunteers and their families don't need to pay to enter the Trials field and there will be a bar serving real ale. Participants are also required, so once we have enough volunteers then perhaps consider racing instead (if you haven't got an entry for the Ben Nevis race)! Extensive prize list and there will be new course records this year.
