There’s another chance to challenge your stamina and help a mountain rescue team.

Edale Mountain Rescue Team is running its Nine Edges Endurance again this year and it’s inviting entries now. Organisers have informed grough that the date has been brought forward.

The event now takes place on Saturday, 15 September, not October as originally planned,  and involves tackling a 20-mile course with 600m of ascent. The route crosses rough moorland and follows gritstone edges, hence the name. There’s also an optional climbing section for those who fancy tackling a route on each of the edges.

If you’re interested, contact the organisers Kim Procter at or Neil Roden at You’ll need to raise at least £30 in sponsorship to take part plus a £10 entry fee, and if you bring in more than £500, you’re promised a day’s free outdoor training from a qualified instructor.

All proceeds go to help the team’s appeal for a new base. The organisers say places are limited, so if you fancy a crack at the Nine Edges, get in touch with them now.
