Results and Report
What a fantastic day and thank you to everyone for their positive feedback so far. I think it is safe to say that everyone had a most enjoyable day!
Here are the results! We had 101 starting the race representing 25 Policer Forces. This is excellent to see with a good percentage of female runners.
It was a very close race!! Cumbrian runner Oliver Dawson retaining his title a second year with a phenomenal time of 1.04.10. Derbyshire runner, Ian Phillips was hot on his heels with a remarkable sprint finish just 10 seconds or so behind him. In 3rd place, Cumbrian, Simon Gray was only a minute or so behind.
Cumbria took the Team Prize with Cheshire 2nd, beating our hosts Derbyshire by one point!
Cheshire ladies Dominique Searle and Rachel Lloyd were first and second ladies home with North Wales lady, Michelle Farrell in third.
Cheshire ladies won the Team prize with West Midlands 2nd and Lancashire 3rd.
Jack Pilkington had a great run and was 1st Male Under 40 with Rob Grantham 1st V40+. Both Cheshire runners.
Some great running from everyone with the final runners finishing just under three hours. There one or two minor cuts and grazes reported but nothing serious and everyone finished safe and well.
Thank you again to our host, Karl Webster and his team of Marshals from Derbyshire and also Lancashire. I have lots of pictures to post soon. The 2024 race will hopefully take place on 8 May 2024 at a venue to be decided!

Distance - 8.7 Miles

Ascent 1900ft

Checkpoints

See Map

Portable Sat Nav Devices

Sat Nav devices /mobile phones are permitted but not used to navigate unless in an emergency. Hard copy map should be carried throughout the race.

Route Description

The course is 9 miles and 2000 feet ascent. It traverses much of the Monsal Dale area.Fairly easy to navigate in good weather but in poor conditions be prepared to navigate! It is a very scenic course but has circa 2000 feet ascent so it is a fairly tough, demanding nine-mile course.

Maps, Check-Points and Waymarks

The course is considered as a fairly tough, rugged fell terrain. It will be way-marked with flags left at intervals. This is to ensure everyone runs the same course and does not get lost. This said, all competitors must still carry the map provided and be prepared to navigate themselves should flags go missing or in bad weather.

Check-points to be announced.

Novice Runners or Walking Challenge

We would like to encourage novice runners or walkers to take part in these races. Though the event is traditionally a 'race' it can also be titled as a 'Challenge' and can be run/walked at a progressive pace.

The cut-off time is 4 hours or 5.30pm. This would make it attractive to athletes wishing to complete the course at a steady but progressive walking pace.

Note: The Prize presentation will take place around 4.00pm so likely that walkers will miss the presentation but refreshments and finishing memento will be still available when you finish.
