NOT CANCELLED IN THE END BECAUSE MIKE IS GREATHi all! As Rob Hicks is not available to lead a moor run this week, I thought I’d let people know on here that I am still planning a Wednesday evening moor run from the Sandpits car park by Row Tor (an apt what three words address: ///skips.overdrive.stitch).The route I have planned is on the paths up to High Willhays, then down to Dinger Tor and back on the main path, about 10.5km all in, allow 60-80mims depending on who turns up.Fair warning, I am not a coach! I do know this route though and am very happy to run this like Rob’s normal Wednesday nights (steady pace and looping back to stay together). All welcome, bring head torches, a whistle and weather appropriate clothing. I’ll get up there for 18:20 for a 18:30 start like normal. Hopefully see some of you there! ... See MoreSee Less

You should all be rightfully proud of your achievements, braving some cold wet evenings plodding around town. Have an enjoyable relaxing Sunday afternoon before embarking on your next challenge. See you all on Tuesday! ... See MoreSee Less
