Club Events - 2020
Click or tap on any Heading to open for more information:
These three races and runs are open to CLUB MEMBERS ONLY. FREE to enter. There is no charge to club members for any of these races. Not a member? Then you cannot run, however the annual cost of being a member is small and spread across the three races is much less than a single fell race. Click on the headings for more information on each race.
This event is a time trial. How long does it take to complete the course? The nearest to predicted time wins, no watches are allowed to be worn. The winner is presented with a trophy at the AGM
How fast can you run a mile? This evening event involves a largely flat one mile race along the canal, finishing at the Navigation Inn at Buxworth. This is an informal low key event so the winner gets their prize straight away.....
Sting in the Tail
The Sting in the Tail does as it says on the tin! But there are no guarantees that there won’t be a sting or two on the way round as well. The sting takes place on a summer Friday evening. The sting in the tail trophy is awarded each year at the AGM.

The route is simple: Finish at the Navigation Inn. Start either at a point on the Peak Forest canal near Bridgemont, or on the tramway near Whitehough. The route varies from year to year one is uphill one down so results will vary considerably.

The route is the same each year but the direction alternates. The race takes place on a Sunday in mid November and starts at Taxal lay-by on Long Hill, grid ref 008 798. Runners set off at 2 minute intervals from 9.30am to 10.30am. You guess your own time (before you set off) and the person nearest their time is the winner. No watches or other timing devices are allowed to be worn along the way. This gives everyone an equal chance to win. The 6.5 mile route will not be marked but there is a map and a detailed route description. You can run with a friend if you are worried about getting lost etc!
Terry Lardner ran with the club until he became ill and sadly died from cancer. As Terry was very well liked and respected as a runner, the club decided to hold an annual race in his memory. The race goes past Terry’s tree, a mountain ash planted in the Goyt Valley, just below Taxal Edge by the members of Chapel Rambling club. They planted the tree as their mark of respect for Terry who alternated between his passions for the outdoors. The Race Winner is awarded the The Terry Lardner Memorial Trophy at the AGM each year.
