> Waskerley Torch Run January 2011

The final head torch run of 2010-11 provided a fitting finale with 26 runners and three dogs turning up on a pleasant but very windy night. Maybe the big turnout was because we had a pub at the finish. However there were only two NFR's - me and John Metson. Most were from DFR and there was a large number from Blackhill Bounders. The run came in at exactly 7 miles with some pretty rough terrain and short steep climbs. We made it to the trig point on Stoterley hill just in time to see the sun finally set over Derwent Reservoir. Head torches were required for some of those at the back of the pack and everyone enjoyed the shelter of the Moor Cock Inn afterwards. It has been a good series of runs and thank you to everyone who came along. Will.
