Ricky’s race 2017 Result

Race date:  Thursday 10th August 2017

Not flat….

Kindly organised by the Matlock Athletic Club  this 7.3 km race includes about 240m of ascent in the stunning Darley Dale area.  Matlock’s race report is a good reference.

151 runners took part (ie managed to drag themselves away, at speed, from the pub at the start).  Ben Cartwright of Matlock AC beat everybody else in a very quick 30:37.  Beth Pascall (I suspect she won the Humber Bridge Half Marathon as well) was first woman home in 34:03.

According to the results sheet, 3 Striders finished the course – congratulations Fran, Mark and Bob.
