A big thank you to everyone who attended the 2015 event. Everyone will agree we all had a great afternoon of running in the Derbyshire Fells with excellent weather conditions.


We had around 50 entries with 35 running on the day. Everyone who started completed this gruelling 6.5 mile course.


Ian Phillips (Derbyshire) won the individual title for the third successive year with Christine Howard (Derbyshire) winning the ladies title. Andrew Slattery (Cumbria) and Liz Kooper (South Yorkshire) both took the Veteran 40 prizes.


Cumbria ruled the fells team wise with Derbyshire and Cheshire also very strong in 2nd and 3rd postion.


Thanks to the hosts, Karl Webster and his Derbyshire marshal team who coordinated a great event for us.
