    Quite a few routes that were distinctly boggy in previous decades are not now, with path 'improvements', modified routes etc. Edale used to have many traps - I was pulled out of a bog there one year by a passing walker who saw the route I took through the zoo...
    A circular route mostly downhill

    Marsden-Edale Trigger on a day when it's not completely frozen over. One year these was a decent snow cover but the temperature seemed to be above freezing... it was fairly hellish.

    Lee Mill seems to be consistently nasty.

    Not so much anymore, You cannot cross Kinder and now with the reservoir bridge closed you cannot even do Bleaklow properly.

    I have taken over as the race organiser of the Groovy Kinder Love and if I get the permissons off Natural England, it will be quite different to the 2018 route. The reality of the peak district is that the envionmental considerations makes it very difficult to head into the "fun" bits.

    The 'sink hole' at The Stoop/Auld Lang Syne (see front cover of February 2003 magazine).
    Going downhill fast - until I fell over

    British Fell Relay from Llanberis (was it 2014?). Where all the legs finished down a muddy, slippery slope with a bog at the bottom. ChrisLeigh-270x300.jpg

    My money is any in the Cheviots. The Cheviot Goat looked horrendous in places

    Any one do Chew Valley skyline back in the day? That looked a potential bog-fest!

    The Bog Monster between Cut gate and Outer Edge on the HPM and grin an bear it routes is fabulous fun when completly sodden or completly dry as it turns into a trampoline. Alas difficult to get permission to race across it now, as with many boggy areas being sensitive
