Update for Ian Milne White Peak Marathon and Swift Half
UPDATE FOR IAN MILNE WHITE PEAK MARATHON AND SWIFT HALF
Message from Andy Lessiter, Race Director. The races are going ahead this Saturday and all is going well with the the pre event planning.
There is a slight diversion to take account of the missing bridge at Longcliffe. (See map below). The latest update on 13th May from Derbyshire County Council, is that the Hopton tunnel will be open on the day of the race. However, we can invoke another slight diversion if for any reason the tunnel isn't open.
Finally, a quick reminder that all volunteers can get a free cob and hot drink from Race HQ either before or during the race.
