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.

Booths Road League
Another great turnout for the Carsington Water fixture with 49 runners plus helpers and supporters. Both men and women teams finished 3rd on the night.
Tim Clayton & Ian Monaghan were our only top ten finishers followed by Steve Gascoyne, James Lamb, Andy Todd, John Sanderson and Joel Siddall making our seven counters. Sam Iliffe was our top female finisher, 4th female overall, with Lisa Pryor and Sally Bawden our other two counters.
With just the final race to go we are handily placed in second for men, women and combined teams and a good turnout on August 5th at Shipley Cricket Club should be enough to secure a final league standing of second for all teams.

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!
Marshals & Helpers
We wouldn't be able to hold the event without you so a big thank you to all the club members, friends and volunteers who turned up at Holmebrook Valley Park to help make the day a success.
