For the 600 runners testing their mettle on the Endurer Dash cross-country event for charity on Saturday half the challenge was trying to stay on their feet.

Up and down a steep hillside between Barlow and Owler Bar competitors encountered bogs, a lake to swim through and dozens of obstacles.

The event, organised by a team led by former Royal Marine Pete Pollard, owner of Hathersage-based Hope Valley Health Club, helped raise funds for Help for Heroes.
