Looking for a good fell running film? Look no further than this - "Excellence Through Misadventure" a potted history of Sheffield's Dark Peak Fell Runners. Set amongst brilliant footage of the 2018 Edale Skyline Race, the film tells the story of the club through a series of interviews conducted with its often outspoken and eccentric members. Running like a thread through the film is a wonderful dry sense of humour that lends itself to some memorable quotes – "we're a drinking club with a running problem" and "there's certainly an anarchic thread running through the club ... we've been shot at once" stick in the mind! A film that's well worth watching!
