Event 4 Hollinsclough is now live!A soggy day spent checking that the satellites work and we are pleased to report that they do and all is good to go for Peak Raid MapRun 4.The number of competitors has grown beyond our expectations, which is great for the competition, but we are a little concerned about the potential impact of Event 4 upon the small village of Hollinsclough, especially at the weekends.We have therefore taken the decision to extend the competition deadline until Saturday 31st July 2021.This should spread the number of MapRun visitors over a 10 week period, rather than the original 5 weeks, and reduce the potential impact upon the village. We apologise if this causes any difficulties but feel sure competitors will understand.The very last date for taking part in any of the four MapRuns is Saturday 5th September, but please note that Saturday 31st July is the last date if you wish to be included in the overall combined competiton results for the series.Latest results up to 24/05/2021 here: explorerevents.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/24.-05.2021-Peak-Raid-MapRun-Winter-Results.pdfPictures: Checking the Chrome Hill and Dale Head course at a leisurely pace.

Peak Raid UpdateIn addition to the warmer weather, another positive benefit of postponing the Winter Series until the spring is the wealth of wild flowers now appearing out on the courses.Whilst out and about near Hay Cop (on the northern part of the Monsal Head course) I came across an impressive display of Cowslips and Early Purple Orchids. The next two or three weeks should see them at their best. I think the white ones are Leadwort, but happy to be corrected!The Lantern Pike and Coombes Edge course is now live. Congratulations to the first three successful finishers: Guy Lingford,Andy Watts and Paula Bateson. Well done to Paula who is currently in first place on the leader board.The combined scores for Event 1 and 2 will be published in the next few days. ... See MoreSee Less
