Wirksworth runners scattered themselves about locally again this week, when windy conditions made it very hard to race our absolute best times. First to the Whitworth Thread, where Bob King (20:03), Mark Crawshaw (20:18) and Chris Gillot (22:11) all put in solid performances for us.
Solid was also the word for the performances at Bakewell from John Potter (18:39) and Jo Butt (30:19), both finding the outward headwind tricky to negotiate. However, it was no problem for Rachel Hathaway who, assisted by her dog, Jango, ran a 1-minute PB! Simon Edwards flew the flag for Wirksworth at Markeaton and it’s a sign of how well he’s been running lately to say that he was disappointed with his 20:51.
