Hayfield Champs 2016 - Only one race to go in this year's champs. Here is the table after 8 of the 9 races. Please note that the closing date for entries this time is Wed, 31 Aug. Next and final race - Lantern Pike on Sat, 17 Sep.
Cracken Edge FR - Wed, 3 Aug - distinctly unseasonal weather this time - strong winds and dark clouds with the last runners coming home in dusky conditions. 200 ran and Andi Jones and Ingrid Storm were first man and woman. Thanks to Jim and Kinder MRT for organising once again. Here are the results - thanks to Dan for sending these over promptly. There is a race report over on the KMRT site.
Kinder Trog - Sun, 26th Jun - I understand that the rain held off for this classic long race though it was wet underfoot after recent deluges. Neil Northrop was first back and Rachael Lawrance was first woman - well done to them both. Thanks to organisers Carl and Sue and all of their helpers. Here are the results - thanks to Sue for getting these to me promptly. If you lost a blue Salomon backpack, please contact the organiser to get it returned to you.

Nick Ham's Trog photos - ta Nick! I have also been sent a link to some very nice photos by Mike Fleet. Mike is happy to exchange hi-res photos for a donation towards the running of the Hayfield scout hut which we use for most of our local races. Details here.

Three Days in May - 20-22 May - 30 runners completed all three races - congratulations to all who managed this. Here is the final table after all three races.
  • Fri 20th - 7:30pm - May Queen - a three mile trot up Lantern Pike from the Scout Hut. Juniors (12 and up) welcome.

    Nicely warm and slightly damp for this race and the heavy rain waited until everyone was back. A bumper (record?) field of over 100 enjoyed their race, thanks to Mary and her team of helpers. Alasdair Campbell was first back and Caitlin Rice was first female. There were notable performances from some very good juniors too. Here are the results.

  • Sat 21st - 11:00am - Mount Famine - five miles and some steep climbs up and around Mount Famine and South Head.

    Once again the rain stayed away for most runners and most made it back in one piece. Commiserations to the runner who sustained a break for the second year running! Alasdair Campbell was first back again and Steph Curtis was first woman. Thanks, as usual, to Mark and his team for organising. Here are the results.

  • Sun 22nd - 11:00am - Lantern Pike Dash - just over a mile from the Lantern Pike Inn to Lantern Pike and back. Separate junior race (on a shorter course) for all ages after the senior race.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't make LPD this year so no horse's mouth report this time. I gather all went well so thanks to Richard and Debbie for organising. Simon Bailey was first back and Caitlin Rice first woman - I believe both men's and women's records were broken! Here are the Senior and the Junior results.

National Trust Fell Running Series Trophy - 2016
At the National Trust in the Peak District we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of conservation and access on the land we look after so that we can keep its special qualities for everyone to enjoy for ever. We want to support everyone to use the land to get active, whether that be walking, cycling, geocaching, orienteering, running, in fact anyway that you can just get outside and feel closer to nature.

To celebrate this, in 2016, we are sponsoring the National Trust Peak District Fell Running Series Trophy. This trophy will go to the male and female runners that accumulate the lowest number of points (1 point for first place, 2 for 2nd etc.) in three of the fell races that take place on National Trust land: the Longshaw Sheepdog Trials Fell Race (Sat, 3 Sep), Lantern Pike Fell Race (Sat, 17 Sep) and the Dovedale Dash (Sun, 6 Nov). It is hoped that the series will become a regular part of the running calendar and the trophy will be a sought-after prize!

The trophy will be carved from a cedar tree that was felled at Ilam Park (one of the National Trust properties near Ashbourne) by local craftsman Austin Neves in Edale and will be a true work of art!

For more details on this or the work of the National Trust, please contact Ruth Tweedie
