Sadly we must announce that all of the remaining Autumn Peak Raid events have been cancelled.

The major landowners are concerned about the rise in coronavirus cases locally and permission for events has been declined. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.

On a more positive note we are proposing to set up a winter series with a similar format to the recently successful summer series. More details will be circulated very soon.

Event Cancelled - Chrome Hil and Dove Head

It is with great reluctance that we have taken the decision to cancel tomorrow’s Chrome Hill and Dove Head Event.

The prolonged and very heavy rain of the last week has made one of the parking fields totally inaccessible, and whilst we have tried to make alternative, last minute parking arrangements, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all of the cars on the one remaining field, which is on an uphill slope and also wet.

We apologise for the late notification of this cancellation. We have tried hard to make the event happen and the good forecast for tomorrow makes the decision even harder.

An email has been sent to all participants.

Paul, Andy and the Team

Andy Haigh has recently completed the Peak Forest event. Whilst out on the course he came across what looks like a buried steam engine near control 12!

Does anyone know what this might be?

Chrome Hill Event - Sun 11 Oct

Despite getting soaking wet we had a good day out checking the course yesterday. An area of contrasting geology. Gritstone in the west and limestone in the east. The western area has many small river valleys and a complex network of footpaths. The eastern area is predominantly limestone and includes the impressive Chrome Hill, formed from ancient coral reefs. The event centre is based at Dowall Hall Farm and has fantastic views of the surrounding hills.

We are hoping to publish the summer series results in the next few days.
