Dark Peak Fell Runners is an athletics club for (mostly) hill & mountain running. The club is based in Sheffield and although the majority of the 300+ membership is local, the famous brown vest has migrated as far New Zealand.

It was such a lovely day in Edale that the results from last Sunday have turned to pulp, so can anyone who ran the race please contact Moz or the webmaster with their time? He's having trouble reading names as well as times, so all help appreciated.

DPFR are organising the Edale Skyline again in 2019, on SUNDAY 24th MARCH. The race will have the same route as 2018, which is essentially the anticlockwise way around the "traditional" course.

The club needs many volunteers to help with car parking, registration, kit check, marshalling (18 checkpoints, including start …
