Wirksworth was represented by 5 runners at the Derby half marathon on Sunday 9th June.  The weather was good for a longer distance race, dry with broken sunshine but not too warm.

The race now starts and finishes near the cathedral in the city centre after having been moved from Pride Park, though the majority of the route is unchanged from previous years.

There were some great results for Wirksworth, including PBs for Chris Gillott and Stacy Newton, with Stacy beating his previous half marathon best by nearly 4 minutes!
