Races for this years league are published at the Club league page
The Ramathon and Derby 10k races that were popular last year are still in and there are two or three additions this year. A return of the local Riber Run and a first year for the Lea Bunny Run 10k as well as a first year for the 16 mile Exterminator fell race. If you know any races that several people are planning to race in you’re welcome to suggest them for inclusion.
Handicaps will be calculated once I’m initiated into the secrets of those dark arts.

Results for this year’s Stuart Learmouth Undulator are posted on the race page here. A fantastic turn-out of 162 in hard conditions, almost 10% of whom came from Wilmslow along with big groups also from Beeston and Long Eaton and visitors from Rossendale. Congratulations to Harry Holmes on his second win in a row and Billy and Ben Cartwright for racing and finishing together in second/third. The women’s title looked a competitive race, the three first finishers battling it out from at least Hopton where I saw them together, to the finish with eventually Catherin Wilson of Beeston pipping Wirksworth’s Jacqui Hawkins (pictured at Harboro rocks) and Belper’s Ruth Keeley.
