Marsden-Edale 8th January 2022
Due to the current uncertainty around additional restrictions to control the spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19, this information may change at short notice. Please keep an eye on the website for last minute changes.
The annual post-Christmas romp on the moors!  Meet as usual at Marsden at the end of Wessenden Rd (GR SE048107 OS South Pennines OL 21 map) for a 7:45 start – finish at/near The Ramblers in Edale.  Note, a packed Ramblers is not an easy place to social distance so some form of outdoor check-in will be arranged for ticking off the finishers.
Granville will be doing a reduced form of his world famous soup kitchen again at Woodhead (car park at the start of the old road to Glossop) and later at Upper North Grain on the Snake Pass. Granville writes: “Because of covid, and the fact that I really do not have proper washing up facilities for the soup bowls and spoons for the next people, I propose to do tea, coffee, chocolate and water for bottles. Along with a plentiful supply of cakes and biscuits. Can all participants please carry their own mugs for brews and drinks, this will greatly reduce the transmission of covid. As for cost, I will have a donation tin to Mountain Rescue for people to put whatever they can spare after Christmas.”
