Holme Moss on Sunday 6th September 1987

A new fell race on a part of the Peak District we dont often visit. A very fast start over track and road led to an awkward descent and steep ascent, bringing us out near the Holme Moss radio transmitter. From there the route took you along the Westend ridge of Black Hill to Crowden. I thought that from this point the route was somewhat contrived, others disagree. It went up Bareholme Moss to a checkpoint and then to the top of Laddow Rocks. Black Hill summit was the next checkpoint and the route was then flagged back to the finish - though I still thought the road section was confusing.
I felt that a potentially good race had been spoilt by the obvious desire to create a category 'A* race. For me, the route would have been better going from Crowden to Laddow Rocks and it would still have been hard with the ensuing bog-trot up Black Hill. The winning time and the times of the better dark peakers seem to indicate that the race is either a very hard 16 miles or wrongly measured. Certainly many runners were caught out - I donated a cagoule and choc-bar to a Holmfirth runner suffering with the first stages of exhaustion hypothermia.
All in all, a well organised race with plenty of food for carnivores and lots of prizes- It was a pity thatthe weather turned so foul in the later stages of the race and ruined the prize giving.
