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!


Robert Scriven was out on the course taking some photos click here and a video click here, thanks Robert.
