Woodhead Mountain Rescue are holding their annual 'Grin 'n' Bear It' challenge walk in a couple of weeks on Saturday October 1st. This is a major annual fundraiser for the team who cover the North and East of the Peak District. We have had quite a busy year helping lost and injured walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders.
If you would like to support the team by taking part you can download an entry form from the website; www.woodheadmrt.org . Entry is £10 in advance or £12 0n the day, and if you raise £30 in sponsors entry is free. Included in the entry fee is food provided along the way and a delicious hot meal at the end of soup, stew and a pudding (veg/vegan option available). There are two walks to choose from at 16miles and 23miles across some wild and beautiful moorland landscape and a family walk of 4.5 miles if you prefer. The event starts at 8:00am (11:00am families) from Crowedge Community Centre, and you get to use our brand new Woodhead Barn and its facilities.
If you want to support the team and help us to help others then we would be delighted to see you and guarantee a warm welcome and our sincere thanks.

I got a pair last year when they brought them out and although I like the canvas feel of them and I am wearing them at the moment- they lose their waterproofness after the first wash and still feel cold when they get wet. Great for climbing and bimbling, camping etc, but don't use them as walking trousers.
