Thanks once again for coming out and supporting our race.
We had 114 entries and everyone finished. Whilst a bit wet and windy at times, conditions for the most part weren’t too bad: probably not ideal for fast times though.
Thanks to all at Buxton Rotary for the marshalling and support of the race, and to the Inner Wheel for the post race food and drinks.
Thanks also to Hazel and Dave our sweepers, to Jo for the assistance with course marking, and also to Accelerate for their generous support of the race and the spot prizes.
Results are on the link below.
The Ladies race was won with a storming run by Dark Peak’s Megan Wilson, in 6th place overall (and narrowly missing out on 4th overall!) from Macc’s Alannah Birtwistle, with Rachael Munday our 3rd placed runner and first LV40. We gave the LV40 prize to Kathleen O’Donnell, LV50 to Wirksworth’s Elaine Stone and LV60 Gail Tombs from Calder Valley. I thought I’d check whether the Ladies race record was broken: but the record is 1:40:24: had someone ran that time today they’d have won the race outright !
Dark Peak won the Ladies team, and Macc Harriers won the men’s team prize.
Lost property consists of a yellow Congleton Buff and what looks like a heart rate monitor strap: if the owner would like to get in touch then we’ll reunite you.
We should have raised in excess of £1000 in total for good causes: we”ll let you know exactly how much and what it’ll be spent on soon.
So thanks for your support: and a final request, please feed back to julianbrown10 at hotmail.co uk any suggestions for improvements we could make. We’d like to increase the number of entries a bit, we could easily cope with more, so any thoughts on the race date, route, or any other aspect would be most welcome.
