2 KM Trail Fun Run

sponsored by Unit 1


Medal to all finishers

The next league race is at Carsington Water, details available via the league website CLICK HEREParking is available at The Milfields Car Park DE6 3JL.  Please can people car share as much as possible due to the limited parking spaces.


This is an "out and back" race, same course as last year (roughly 5.5 miles), with the start on "the dam" which allows for a faster start.  Runners will then run back down to Millfields Car Park and follow the path round, through the car park and out onto the more hillier section of Carsington. There will be a marshal at the turn around point and there should be some water available there too (should anyone need it).


There will be marshals, markers and signs throughout the course however all participants should be aware that the route is open to the public and care should be taken especially on the blind bends.


Water and cups will be provided but if anyone has their own race cups or even water bottles that they could take, that would cut down on all the plastic wastage. 



We were set for a record turnout this year but the weather put many runners off although we still finished with our second highest number of finishers with 65 braving the awful conditions. Thanks to everyone one who ran and also to those who had the worst of the conditions, our course marshals and helpers.


First to cross the finish line, making his Twigg debut, was Martin Cooper in a fantastic time of 44:02 although considering he claimed a 10k handicap of 45 minutes he may have managed to outwit the handicap committee! Martin (pictured on the right) set off 30 minutes after the first runner and managed to overtake more than half the field. His 'gun time' was 74:02 which was just 16 seconds ahead of Joanna Smederod with Maggie Gorman a further 11 seconds back in 3rd place. Most of the handicaps seemed to have worked out ok with a steady stream of runners heading down Newbold Road despite a 41 minute gap between first and last at the start.


Richard Start posted the quickest time of the night, covering the 10k+ distance in 36:39. 2018 winner Joel Siddall was 2nd in 38:13 which was actually quicker than his winning time from last year of 39:14, a brilliant run considering the conditions. There was a tie for third quickest with Tom Topham, Nick Baker & Neil Robins all completing the course in 41 minutes.


A final thanks to Sue Brundrett who once again organised another great Twigg event. Full results can be downloaded below.
