Are You Biosecruity Aware?Our next event visits the impressive Cressbrook Dale which is designated a Special Area for Conservation (SAC) and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).The dale is home to a wide range of rare species and for some it is the only known place of their existence in the world. Within the last few years there has been a dramatic rise in the number of new pest and pathogen outbreaks, which sadly, are having a negative impact upon the natural environment. Therefore, it is important that visitors to the countryside need to be more aware of, and take a more responsible approach to biosecurity. Simply running or walking through farmland and then into a nature reserve can increase the risk of spreading pathogens. Transporting organisms via soil and vegetation on shoes poses one of the biggest risks. Please help to minimise the biosecurity risk associated with spreading pathogens from places previously visited by thoroughly cleaning footwear to remove organic debris before you go for a run or start an event.Peak Raid3 – Sunday 5th December Entries here:www.sientries.co.uk/series.php?series_id=498Picture: Ascending Peter's Stone Cressbrook Dale ...

Peak Raid3 Round 4 - Sunday 5 DecemberAs a result of the tree disease Phytophthora ramorum it’s now not possible to hold the Goyt event this year. Forestry England are obliged to take measures to mitigate the risks of spreading the disease and therefore the event cannot take place.As a consequence, we have taken the decision to relocate to Great Longstone with the course heading north and visiting Oarystones, Longstone Edge and Moor, Cressbrook Dale, Rough Side and more.We are very disappointed, but hope to return to the Goyt next year.Photo: Longstone Moor looking south. ...
