Buxton Half Marathon

Yesterday over in the high peak, the Buxton Half Marathon took place, with two Eryri representatives running on unfamiliar terrain.

231 eager runners lined up on a glorious sunny day.  The race has a tag line on its souvenir tshirt, “its a killer”!  The race has a total ascent of over 1500ft of climbing with fast descents and twisty single track roads, with a profile similar to that of my much preferred terrain (mud and mountains).

Joanne and I had a good run out in our road shoes, me finishing in 7th overall and 2ndv40 in 1.23.19 (the winning time was set by Dale Annable of Heanor AC 1.16.58); with Joanne enjoying the run but just outside the prizes by finishing 62nd overall 6th female and 2ndv40 in 1.41.57.

A highly recommended day out in the Peak District on a Bank Holiday weekend.

Martin Cliffe.
