No Walk in the Park - 7 July
Booths Road League
The FIFA World Cup had an impact on numbers with only 240 finishers when there are normally over 400. We still managed to get 24 non football supporting runners out though and our men finished 8th and women 7th.
Age category results for the men were Miles Winter 2nd v40 and Garry Elkington 3rd v50. For the women Sue Becket and Alison Cowley were 2nd/3rd v50 and Maggie Gorman was 1st v60. With one race to go, Shipley Cricket Club on 7 August, potential trophy winners are Garry Elkington currently 2nd v50 and Maggie Gorman who if she finishes 1st v60 at Shipley could take the v60 trophy.
The results are now available via the Booths League results website CLICK HERE. From the main screen click Organisers, then Booth Decorators then click Carsington from the events list on the right. Scroll down and click All Members to see a results list.
The Brampton Brewery Chesterfield Spire 10 Mile
Sunday 1 July Start time
The Unit 1 Family Fun Run 2.5km Run/Walk
Congratulations to Spire 10 winner, NDRC's own Richard Start who crossed the finish line first in 58:48. Two others broke the hour with second placed Kimberley Strider Paul Taylor 59:21 and Beeston AC's Greg Hopkinson 59:44 in third. For the ladies, a NDRC one, two with Helena Schofield 67:31 and 14th place overall 30 seconds clear of Sam Iliffe 68:01. We could claim a NDRC 1, 2, 3 as Stockton Strider Lauren Beckett-Davies came third in 70:47 but her mum and dad are both NDRC so "she is more ours than theirs!"
Thanks to everyone for supporting our events today and a special thanks to all the race marshals and helpers because without them we wouldn't be able to host them.

Tuesday 19 June
Holmebrook Valley Park
Joel Siddall was the 2018 Twigg winner finishing well clear of second placed Sam Passingham who just managed to hold off a fast finishing Matt Hemsley. The trophy was presented to Joel at the post race buffet at the Olde House by 2017 winner Laura Lever.
Joel's actual time over the 10k+ course was 39:14 but the quickest runner on the night was Richard Start who set off last but finished 6th with a course time of 35:40, short of Steve Leverton's all time record of 35:15 but posting the quickest time since the start/finish was moved to Holmebrook Valley Park from St Mary's School. The previous best from Holmebrook was 35:55 by Steve Penney in 2013. Russ White was the third runner on the night to break 40 minutes with a time of 39:35.
Fliss Milner was the first female home in 8th place overall and a personal time of 52:08. Sue Beckett finished 10th overall, 24 seconds behind Fliss with Lynne Delaney crossing the finish line a further 28 seconds later for third female. Hannah Barnett was the quickest female in 47:38.
A big thank you to Sue Brundrett and the team of marshals and helpers who did a brilliant job in organising a great event. Detailed results can be downloaded below.
