Great Northern Half

This is a relatively new event and the first time that a half option has been available. There were a few teething issues such as the muddy car park and no official times for those who entered on the day which was a little disappointing as it was a chip timed event. In addition to this is was a very cold day :(

Sunday 31/01/2016

Wilmot Wander – 32.5M

Some of our members do like to run this but it does normally fall the day after our ‘Evening’ so it would be only the brave that attempt this!


Dave Broadbent – 5.29.25

Tigger Tor – 9.5M

See the following details of this race which I have taken directly from the website

The route

Course Map – See Below


For safety reasons, the return route, from checkpoint 11, was changed last year to avoid the busy Hathersage Road section – see attached map for details. That part of the route this year will be the same as last year.
Checkpoints, as marked on the attached map, must be visited in numerical sequence.

The route between checkpoints is optional with the exception of:

a section of the route after CP2 (Ox Stones). From that point, to reduce environmental impact, there is a short mandatory section of the route. All runners must follow the marshals’ directions and must not run on the main paths between CP2 (map ref 280831) and map ref 271828 (a point on the path that leads to Burbage Rocks). As most runners won’t have the opportunity to reccy this section, it will be marshalled/marked throughout. The marshals at CP2 will direct runners onto the mandatory line, that you should follow for the first 100m after you leave CP2. This will take you across open, rough, heather-covered terrain for about 100m. As long as you comply with the wording of the rule, as stated above, once you pass the last marshal, you are free to find your own way.However, an advisory route, along a feint path, has been marked with bamboo canes/hazard tape as far as map ref 271828 (a distance of about 900m), where it meets the main path that leads to Burbage Rocks. To see a plot (in reverse) of the diversion, including the advisory route, click here
The 2 short, marked, marshalled sections between Tigers RUFC and Checkpoint 1/11, competitors must not run along roads.
Competitors must find their own way to each checkpoint without external assistance. Marshals will do no more than indicate the general direction in which you should proceed on leaving a checkpoint.

To cap it all it was a cold cold miserable race as can be seen by Rogers photo below

I managed to drag Simon (as well as on Saturday) and Mary to this race. If you remember it had snowed on the night before so this was a snowy and muddy race. You have to be careful of the mole hills, which are virtually hidden by the snow so the ankles took a battering. The route had a nice little extra climb with descent which added to this already tough course!

Rob Lane – 56.11

Rob of course did this in his first claim capacity to Team Derby Runner. He did comment that is was quite tough due to very muddy conditions

Cannock Chase Trig Point Race

This race involves 500M (1500ft) of climb over 27K (around 16 miles) – it’s a course where you self navigate for the best route and a long distance so not for the faint hearted. Also as self navigating be prepared to do more than 16 miles!!
