If you’d like to come along to a training night please let the coaches know. Details on the Training Page.
The first club champ race for 2022 has been postponed. From the organiser:
Hi Folks, really really sorry, but due to the recent storms and wet weather there are no fields in, around or near enough to Dufton to provide the car parking needed for our races on Saturday (this also includes the kids trail races). This final straw combined with some other issues (we can’t provide much shelter, we can’t provide hot drinks etc) has meant that unfortunately we are going to have to postpone the race on Saturday.
Once we know more, we will circle back. But just wanting to get this sad news out to you all as soon as possible so that you can replan your weekends. As much as we like seeing you all, please do not come to Dufton this weekend.
Thanks for your understanding and a thousand apologies.
Wasdale is on the 9th of July and is the second AL race in the Club Champs. Entries open at SI Entries using the link:

What looked like being a wet cloudy evening turned out to be the opposite. A beautiful starry night and a run out to the Standing Stones for mince pies and mulled wine under the Milky Way. Lovely night.

The club championship events for 2022 are now available so you can start planning.
Silent Night is the dark festive cousin of Chapelfell Top Race. It is 6.6km with 370m of ascent, run entirely in the dark, on an unmarked route, on rough pathless ground up to the 703m summit of Chapelfell Top above St John’s Chapel, Weardale. Navigation will be required. GPS is not allowed to be used for navigation, but the use of a GPS device to display distance travelled, time, speed or altitude is allowed. Entries will be via SI Entries. You must provide verifiable evidence of completing two events which include off path navigation such as Mountain Marathons, orienteering events or AL Lakeland (or similar) races (trail races/sky races/short fell races won’t be accepted). Kit requirements are extensive and will be strictly enforced. If you aren’t sure if you have enough relevant experience please read no further, this is not a race for people without extensive fell racing experience.
