Dig Deep Whirlow Hall Farm Festival 2018

Whirlow Hall Farm Festival, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August 2018

The Whirlow Dig Deep Weekend is a festival of running including ultras of 30, 50 and 60 miles (the 60-miler of which also includes over 10,000ft of ascent as part of its new route this year), a 12:12 and a 10k, all in the heart of the Peak District.  All routes are described as being without any “monster climbs” but Dig Deep quote between 622m on the 12:12 and 3,222m on the 60-mile version so all events represent a significant challenge. The 30-mile version is considered a good test for anyone considering their first ultra-marathon.

There was a good contingent of Striders in attendance including category placings for Mir Jansen (1st FV50 in Dig Deep 30), Ashleigh Barron (2nd in category Dig Deep 12:12), Dot Kesterton (2nd Fvet50 Dig Deep 12:12), Kate Scott (3rd Fvet50 Dig Deep 12) and Helen Eberlin (2nd FV50 Dig Deep 10k.)  Well done everyone.
