Peak Raid Winter Series Now LiveThe first event of the winter series has an impressive start location on the western side of the Monsal Head Viaduct and visits Cressbrook Dale, Miller's Dale and the surrounding limestone hills and dales. The course will challenge your decision making, navigation and fitness! Will you head north to the lonely summit of Wardlow Hay Cop and Peter's Stone, or will you go west to visit the southern slopes of Water cum Jolly? As a consequence of the government's tier restrictions (specifically avoiding travel outside of your area) the event is initially open for Derbyshire residents only. Once restrictions are eased we will extend the length of time the events are open to allow all that want to enter to take part. We will confirm a closing date once we have a better idea of the future easing of lockdowns, restrictions etc.More details can be found here: www.sientries.co.uk/series.php?series_id=458Picture: Peter's Stone in the northern part of the area. ...
