Ian Milne White Peak Marathon, ‘Swift Half’ Marathon and ‘Down in a Shot’ 10k Report and results

Isn’t there a tradition in sport in which excellence is recognsed through allowing three times successive winners the right to retain a trophy in perpetuity?

That’s Huntingdon’s AC Ty Farrers claim now as he stormed to win the full marathon race today following his earlier pre-Covid victories in 2018 & 2019. And it’s also good to see he’s kept up the training over lockdown as he finishes over 5 minutes quicker than his previous times. In the ladies marathon race, the impressive Ieva Klavina made it a Huntingdon AC double triumph, and a special mention to Kevin Uzzell of Stone Marathon Masters in choosing our race to complete his 75th marathon in his 75th year.

In the ‘Swift Haf ‘ Marathon, it was Kimberley and District Strider Michael Perry who led the way to take the win, and what a performance from Kate Wright of Stratford upon Avon AC in finishing 7th overall to take the win in the ladies race.

What a motivating story our inaugural ‘Down in a Shot’ 10K produced with the overall race winner, and the winner of the ladies race, both being V60+ runners!!!! Massive admiration and huge respect go to Peter Thompson from Cambridge & Coleridge AC and Jayne Dale of Beverley AC

Many congratulations to everyone who ran today and much acclaim to the prize winners. Matlock Athletic Club wish to thank you all, your supporters and our amazing volunteers for your support and we hope to see you all in 2023,
