Festival of Running 18 May 2024

On Saturday 18th May, Matlock Athletic Club hosted its annual Festival of Running, comprising the Ian Milne White Peak Marathon, the Swift Half Marathon, and the ‘Down in a Shot’ 10k.

The weather in the days leading up to the race was wet… very wet. But the weather gods were kind, and the weekend delivered a beautiful day with runners enjoying MAC-blue skies accompanied by temperatures that were less enjoyable.

The event is marshalled by club members and supporters – a team of over 80 volunteers came together and the club has received many kind comments from runners acknowledging the encouragement and cheerful support throughout their race.

Full results from the races are available on our Webscorer page:

Congratulations to all of our prize winners, and everyone that took part in the event.
