Kinder Trog - Sun, 24 Jun - not quite 'scorchio' but a pretty hot day for the Trog which saw 170 head off to Lantern Pike, Mill Hill, Kinder and back via Edale Cross, South Head and Big Stone. Phil Marsden of Horwich was first back and Nicola Bowen of Dark Peak was first woman. Thanks to organisers Carl and Sue and all of their helpers. I believe that Carl and Sue will be handing on this race (after 8 years) so many thanks for taking good care of this classic event.

Here are the results - thanks to Fran for sorting these out promptly. And here are photos from Mark Fermer - thanks WC!

Hayfield Championship 2018 - well over half way now after the flurry of races in May. A few more entries in too (thanks Andy) so here is the table as of Jun 18th. More details here.
Three Days in May - Three races in three days, with prizes for first M & F in the 3 race series. There will also be a number of spot prizes for those who manage all three races so don't rush off afterwards...!

30 runners managed to complete all three races in the series and Noel Curtis and Clare Griffin were series winners - well done to them. Here is the final table.

  • Hayfield May Queen - Fri, 18 May - 7:30pm - a three mile trot up Lantern Pike from the Scout Hut. Juniors (12 and up) welcome.

    Warm and dry conditions for this year's May Queen race and over 90 turned out to run. Jake Lane of Totley AC was first back and Charmaine Wood of Congleton AC was first lady - well done to them. Thanks to Mary for organising (and to Andy for taking charge today) and also to marshals, helpers & co. Here are the results and here are photos from Nick Ham - thanks!

  • Mount Famine - Sat, 19 May - 11:00am - five miles and some steep climbs up and around Mount Famine and South Head.

    Rather hot for a Cat A race by all accounts today. A smaller than usual field of 106 took part and Josh Williams and Megan Wilson were first M/F back for a Dark Peak double. Thanks, as usual, to Mark and his team for putting this race on again. Here are the results and here are Nick's photos.

  • Lantern Pike Dash - Sun, 20 May - 11:00am - 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.

    Another hot day and nearly 80 completed the mad dash to the summit of Lantern Pike with river crossings and a seemingly vertical bank to contend with. There were juniors in the first two places with Jacob Winfield and Dan Soles at the head of the field and Imogen Trinder was first woman back. Thanks to Richard for organising and to all of his helpers. The junior race was well attended as usual and as competitive as ever. Here are the senior and the junior results.

Groovy Kinder Love - Sun, 30th Sep - a new race organised by Noel Curtis and Pennine FR. It's long, it's tough, it's local. For those interested in the route, Pat Barry has had a run round and posted his track on Strava. Race details here.
Fell 'n' Back - Sat, 29th Sep - another new race (in what's becoming a busy weekend!), organised by Buxton MRT. This one tours the moors west of Buxton and covers a little over 12 miles. Race details here and here.
