    T'was lovely and a cracking route, if I say so myself.

    I also took my two running girlfriends out with the torches last night and they were pleasantly impressed.

    Here's to Hope keeping us from the depression thread this winter.

    (and the Ilkley Black helped too)

    Interested in this one, as it's nobbut two miles from my house! Where did you run too from the pub, and was it off road or on? I did a little head torch run of my own last week, up Windgate Nick way, and I'm going to be doing another one this weekend.

    p b, we run over Farnhill Pinnacle and out towards Bradley most weeks through winter with various route variations. You'd be very welcome and there's usually free food after. About time you came over for a run out

    You're right, DT, it IS about time I joined in a run or two. My only excuses are shift work and cowardice. Quite a pull up to the Pinnacle from the Lion..!

    Headtorch-less headtorching is the new headtorching

    I can heartily recommend running with DT's headtorch troupe and all their different route's up above Kildwick - the routes are I suspect all very minor variations of the same basic run but in the dark they each become somehow completely unique. And I definitely recommend the pub afterwards. If my dratted daughter didn't have to be transported to and from deepest, darkest Bradford on a Wednesday night I'd be tootling along myself.

    Re: Tonight's headtorcher

    Spent much of my youth wandering those moors often when I should have been in a classroom and my parents house is just across the valley with a great view to the pinacle. One thing I've noticed over the last few years is how many new trees there are on the moor are presumably due to changes in animal grazing. What was once brown and purple is now distinctly green at least in summer.

    I love running at night and particularly at dusk, enjoying the sunset and finishing at a convenient pub just as its getting properly dark.
    Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run
