The White Peak 'Down in a Shot' 10k
Saturday 16th May 2020 at 11.00am
A new event with only 150 places........
The long established White Peak Marathon and 'Swift Half' marathon just gained a new speedy upstart to complete the MAC White Peak Festival of Running - the 'Down in a Shot' 10k.
Run entirely off-road on the picturesque High Peak Trail over the super fast final section of both the full and half marathon routes, you will be challenged to keep your legs beating out a rapid tempo as you fly down three long descents that bring you to the final section on the scenic Cromford Canal towpath. So you get the advantage of all the 'downs' and none of the 'ups' that have to be ascended in the full and half marathon events. CLICK HERE to enter. This is an ARC permitted event so you do not need to be EA registered to register as a club runner.
