Only just over three weeks to go until our first event of the autumn series! I've been out checking control sites today and managed to dodge most of the downpours. Here are a few pictures taken today from the Great Longstone area. More to follow in the next few days, if it ever stops raining. ... See MoreSee Less

Good news, Peak Raid 3 is back!
Probably, like many of you, we were very disappointed to hear that the PR3 series was due to finish this coming autumn.
Dave Peel and Richard Patton have created an excellent series of events that have, quite rightly, developed a loyal and enthusiastic following. So, first of all, we would like to pay tribute to Dave and Richard with a massive thank you for all of their hard work and commitment in establishing the unique character and friendly atmosphere of the Peak Raid 3 series.
It is our aim to continue, and to build upon, Dave and Richard’s original vision by organising high quality, challenging and friendly events in a variety of Peak District terrain.
Between us, we have many years’ experience; competing in orienteering events, fell races and mountain marathons and intend to use our combined knowledge (of over 60 years competing!) to establish a spring series and an autumn series. We are currently in the process of planning the four autumn events for 2019 and will provide an update with details, dates, pictures and more in the very near future.
Looking forward to meeting you all at an event in the near future. Keep watching this space for more information and updates.
Paul Addison and Andy Jackson
