    Darren Holloway (Pennine)

    All fell runners will be saddened to hear that Darren died yesterday whilst competing in Leg 4 of the Ian Hodgson Relay.


    Darren was running with Steve Knowles between Hart Crag and St Sunday Crag (marshaled) when he collapsed near Link Hause on the way to Fairfield. He received prompt CPR assistance, including from runners who selflessly stopped to help him, until the Air Ambulance arrived to take him to Barrow Hospital.


    Our thoughts are for his wife Amanda, his family and all those who knew him.


    Darren was 42.


    Jonathan and Scoff.

    Re: Darren Holloway (Pennine)

    An absolute gentleman, I was a bit star-struck in his presence.
    I was so flattered by his comments about my edale skyline result earlier this year when I finished 1.5 hrs behind him

    From Daz.

    Well done Pat
    Great report. The last section to Ringing Rodger does play on your mind. You describe it very well.
    Is that Ringing Rodger or not.??? I well remember The great Ron Fawcett literally cajouling me across that bit in 2007.
    Knocking 35mins off your time is a brilliant achievement.
    Thankyou for sharing your journey

    God, that is terrible news. He clearly loved fell running so much.

    Thoughts with his family.

    Terrible news and such a shock to us all. He was such an inspiration and an incredible fell runner. RIP Daz mate, you will be greatly missed in the fellrunning world.

    What a tragedy. I didn't know Daz well but can only echo what people above have said: whenever I met him he was as interested in and enthusiastic about my modest achievements as he was about his own brilliant performances. He was a gentleman and a top bloke. My deepest sympathies go to all who loved him; the whole fellrunning community is poorer for his loss.

    I preferred your original version, we should celebrate his life.

    I only knew Daz through the forum but his enthusiasm and love for the fells shone through and I wish I had known him personally. Terrible news and my heartfelt sympathy to his family and all who knew him.

    I didn't know Daz, but know people who did and he was clearly a top bloke. And a top runner. I very much enjoyed reading his blog. What terribly sad news.

    This is really sad news. I have enjoyed some great races against Daz this year and some good chats afterwards. He will be badly missed.
