The White Peak 'Down in a Shot' 10k

Saturday 16th May 2020


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.

Members' Survey December 2019

As we look forward to 2020, the committee would like to get members' views on the club activities, to see if there is anything that we might be able to tweak. As ever, you are all welcome to speak to any of the committee members at any time, but we have also created a short survey - it would be appreciated if you could complete this, so that we can see where there might be things that we need to change. And if you're all super happy with how things are, it's also reassuring for us to know that too!

Thanks in advance for your views - the survey should only take a minute or two to complete, and it will help us to help you:
