Many thanks and a very happy birthday to Dave B for treating us all to 40th b'day beer in the George in Castleton by way of a restorative subsequent to trailing Dave Holmes and Andy Moore on the longest and possibly fastest Wart of the season via Hollins Cross, Ringing Roger and Mam Tor. The whisky stop was distinguished by Andy's offering of Tia Maria - or possibly Bailey's. No-one was quite sure, but it certainly wasn't whisky. Mild and occasionally claggy, and a good turn out all round. Whilst we pounded rather more tarmac than is traditional, the shorter alternative visited a pond, we are told. No doubt a second track will be along in due course for comparative purposes.

There is a map of this run, view the post to see it

(alarming things to encounter whilst out a-innocent-wartin') "][/caption] The 18 strong group of those who felt that Dave's call of Ringing Roger & Grindslow Knoll seemed a bit over ambitious did visit the unnamed pond above the Edale Road, then Mam Tor and a few steep hillsides thereabouts. An exciting moment when some rocks were dislodged and headed towards Mr Harmer at high speed fortunately caused no damage. An excellent pub after, made all the better by the free round, thanks Dave.

A third option was apparently run by Jim and Mike, Jim says "as all available lifts to Castleton were taken, Mike Browell and I did a dogrun last night from Curbar Gap last night – see appropriate course map attached"

Only for the first two hundred metres. After the fields it's dreadful tussock and marsh. Like you I was too optimistic, having avoided the place for years.

Ha, notice the dogs collar is tied across Leash fen! ( is there a runner's line across this by-the-way? I've tried a couple of times and not found one)
