The White Peak 'Down in a Shot' 10k
Saturday 7 November 2020 [proposed new date - see below]
We recognise the hard work and training that you will have put in already. We want to be able to put on the event, and we know that you want to race. However, it will probably come as no surprise that we have decided it would be impractical, unwise and potentially unsafe to proceed with the event.
As things stand, our plans are as follows: We have earmarked Saturday 7 November 2020 as a replacement date for the 10k and half marathon. This is of course still subject to unfolding events, and if disruption continues throughout summer and autumn, we will update you if we have to cancel the 2020 event entirely. If you are unable to make this event, you can withdraw and have a refund, or you can roll forward your entry to 2021, to ensure that you are on the entry list for that event.
We have decided to cancel the Marathon, and this will be excluded from the November event. Sorry to those of you that are disappointed, but with shortened daylight hours and potentially cold weather, we do not feel it is fair on runners or our marshals to go ahead with the full marathon race. Anyone that has entered will be automatically rolled forward to the 2021 event, but we are also happy if you would prefer a refund, or if you would like to transfer your entry to the half marathon (with a refund on the difference in entry fee of course). We will provide a further update to runners via the race entry system, explaining what you need to do if you do want to change or cancel your entry.
Thank you for your understanding. I hope that we all get through the next few months safely and that some normality returns sooner rather than later, so that we can all get back to doing what we love - without keeping 2 metres apart. Matlock Athletic Club
Welcome to the homepage for the Down in a Shot 10k, the new speedy young member of the MAC White Peak Festival of Running. This may be the fastest 10k you will enter and joins the popular Ian Milne White Peak marathon and Swift Half marathon in offering runners a variety of distances on the scenic High Peak Trail to choose from . All three races will be staged at the same time, the huge benefit you will gain from this race is you get all the downhills - the course has a nett gain of 800ft+ of descent. So it will be fast, very fast!!!!!
There will be a generous prize list on offer PLUS bonus prizes of £100 to the winners of the mens and ladies races should they finish in under 30.00 minutes in the mens race and 34.00 minutes in the ladies race. And we believe those times are achievable targets on this course.
The entry system opens at 8.00am on Friday morning 1st November 2019 and we expect the 150 places to sell-out very quickly. It is online entry only through Bookitzone via the link below where full details of the race can be found.
