No Walk in the Park - 2 May


Bit of a cold start but our highest turnout of the year with 98 starters & finishers in the 5k.  We also had 26 for the children's fun run. 

We thought we might be struggling for marshals but an appeal to club members brought a fantastic response with 21 turning up to help, thanks to you all.


The 5k had a close finish with Derby AC's Russel Parkin out sprinting North Derbyshire's Tim Clayton in the final 100 yards to win by 3 seconds. 17:40 and 17:43 are not bad times for two over 50's. In the women's race Ripley's Lucy Taylor finished 8th overall in 19:09 ahead of Hallamshire Harrier Hannah Whitelam in 19:23.


Download results below for the 5k and Children's Fun Run.  Thank you for your support and hope to see some of you next month on Saturday 6 June. In the meantime if you get itchy feet there are two 5k runs next week on 9 May organised by Buxton AC click here  or Matlock AC click here.
