he we go again the toughest race in Derbsyhire but worth it it has to be Eyam and then Buxton next week for me aswell

visited Eyam when at school and loved the place never though i would run the race there every year


  • Mental!  I've opted for the nice flat/downhill White Peak instead but enjoy the hills Compo 1......

    i   did Leeds last week in 1h42   coming 780 out of  4517     i am training for my next 2 marathons   Chester  and Huddersfield next April

  • Good luck for tomorrow - no idea where I'll place as I've not run any hills remotely like this - sub 2h over the moon I think. Give us a wave if you see me - number "1"... (I signed up as soon as I got the email entries were open!).

    I am number 82   either in dark blue t-shirt  or  yellow Leeds half     what ever you do  do not take of to fast with this one

  • Excellent race!  Not quite as bad as I thought it would be to be honest (I think the nice weather helped).  Managed it in 1:54 so pretty happy as I'd not really done any hill training.  Definitely be back next year now I know what to expect image

  • What a great race! First time doing it and I was really impressed with the organisation and atmosphere. It really helps when you've got great weather combined with the scenery.

    Not sure about a pink t-shirt with rats on it....image

  • Well done chaps!
