Four Wirksworth members took part at Carsington Water this weekend, with two races happening on both the Saturday and the Sunday. The 10km course was an out-and-back from the main visitor centre, through the Sheepwash car park and out to a turnaround marshal at 5km. John Potter’s 39:53 was enough for 3rd place on the Saturday, whilst Carrie Clark was thrilled to bits with 51:59 totally obliterating her pre-race target of 60 minutes. Dave Spencer (pictured) finished in 14th place on the Sunday with 44:03. Although he clearly ran in his club vest, he ran under “Derby athletic club”, so his 10 club vest points are currently on hold with the adjudication panel.
The half marathon course was one clockwise lap of the reservoir followed by another out-and-back section taking in Sheepwash. Stacy Newton ran a brilliant 1:42:26.
