2013 was a particularly poignant choice of charities. After the tragic death of former member Darren Holloway whilst competing at a race in Cumbria in October 2012 we are donating this years profits to two charities chosen by his family.
The profits from the 2103 race were divided equally between the woodhead mountain rescue and north west air ambulance.
The first cheque of £500 being donated last week to the Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team.
