No Walk in the Park - 6 September

It's our next 5k this Saturday at Queen's Park, 9.30am start. Register in the cricket pavilion from 8.45am. All abilities welcome. Also children's fun run which now starts straight after the 5k.

You now have only 4 races to go if you want to qualify for prizes and a race t-shirt by completing at least 6 of the 12 races this year.

Please note there is a cricket match starting at 11am so we have to be out of the cricket pavilion by 10:30.

It really helps registration if you register your intention to run on Saturday and also save you filling in an entry form. Just email name and dob/club to - - Provided you register by midday on Thursday, your race number will then be ready for collection on Saturday.

Twigg Handicap 15 July


Hope everyone enjoyed the handicap run at Holmebrook and it was great to see so many at the post race buffet in the Olde House. Congratulations to trophy winner Ged Corkill, still some way of his best following an injury layoff but proved he is on the way back with a time of 45:30 on the 6.4km course.  Malc Gonnella was second just 9 seconds ahead of fast finishing Dan Halksworth in third.


For the second year running the quickest man on the course was Steve Penney in a time of 36:47 just 12 seconds ahead of Martin Dawson with Russ White third in 40:30.  Quickest woman was Sam Iliffe in 43:11 with Julie Renshaw second 47:33 and Lisa Pryor a further 12 seconds behind in third.


We had a record turnout on the night with 69 starters and 68 finishers, the unlucky runner was Alan Ashburner who pulled up injured.  Thanks to all who ran, marshalled or helped out.


Results can be downloaded below, they show two tables, the left one is runners in the order they finished and the right hand one is in order of quickest time to slowest time for the 6.4km distance.

Brampton Brewery Chesterfield Spire 10 Mile


Sunday 6 July 2014


Well done to everyone who ran in the 10 mile and fun run, results can be downloaded below.


Congratulations to race winners Shelton Strider James Walker in 59:27 and first female Matlock's Christine Howard in 1:09:58. With race sponsor Brampton Brewery providing the prizes, I Think Shelton Striders may have gone home a little tipsy as they also had second place with Sam Pearch 1:0:08 and they won both male and female team prizes!
