Trigger Photos 2015

Trigger 20150080

Here are my photos of today’s race, the Marsden to Edale fell race or the Trigger. I wasn’t entering the race but  spent all week watching every weather forecast hoping it wasn’t going to be too severe. My photos were taken from just below Black Hill where the wind was quite gusty. After sitting in wet snow for half an hour my hands were freezing. Luckily my warm car was only a short run away.

Ex Penniner Adam Perry had a 40 second gap over second place at this point. It was hard to see who was who with most runners wearing full kit. Who is the Penniner in photo number 20150074 with the balaclava on? Sorry you are a blur Lisa  but you were just going too fast! Well done to all who took part. Here is my link. Regards Mark.

Hayfield Village – Saturday 5th April 2014

There’s lots going off in Hayfield this Saturday.  Here’s the press release that John Harvey has sent me:-


Eventful day in Hayfield: Saturday 5th April

Three community groups in Hayfield have independently organised visitor entertainment events for Saturday 5th April.

In the morning, Hayfield Primary School are hosting a “Chicken Run” fell racing program. There are races for all ages; 5K & 9.5K for adults, registration from 9.30am, races from 10am, adults 11am. There will also be prizes, cakes, Easter egg hunts and a clothing sale.

The Kinder Visitor Centre Group are holding their first pop-up Art sales and Exhibition in the Village Hall, featuring paintings of Kinder and the Hayfield landscape, by six different local artists. This goes on from 10am to 4pm. There will also be a Kinder Trespass display area, and sales of cards, prints, posters and walks booklets, together with all day refreshments – and admission is free.

Handmade Hayfield are holding the latest of their monthly pop-up craft sales, from 10am to 3pm in St Matthews  Hall, adjoining the church in the village centre.  There will also be optional workshops, demonstrations of craft skills, and refreshments.

So if any or all of these appeal, Saturday 5th April is a good day to visit the “Gateway to Kinder”, one of the Peak District’s most characterful  villages.


The Trigger 2014 – Eventful race this year!

Here we go again. Another early morning alarm call on a very cold morning to get to Hayfield for “The Trigger” bus. Bit different this year as I left my car at New Mills Station and then four of us continued onto Hayfield in Geoff’s car. The Cricket club is such a nice start venue, great atmosphere in side and warm as well. Chatted to quite a few people then outside to drop off the bag. Chatting to IanW outside I find out about another route change so that we will not be going down the road but instead a little cut through directly from the start field. Continue reading
