Derwent Duathlon 2017 - race report and results

                                

Another great day out for us all - thank you very much.

Again, it was an honour to incorporate the Police Sport UK national duathon championships into the event with people travelling from all over the country to join us.

Congratulations once more to Matthew Hallam on his victory and massive congratulations to 15-year old Elsbeth Grant on her total demolition of the ladies previous record by eight minutes. There was little over two minutes between Elsbeth and her dad so, Eugene, you'd better be watching your back next year. A desperate time in any parent's life!

                                                                        Matt before he's even had a sip.

 

Thanks to my family and friends who helped out on the day and also to the Glossop Police Cadets for their assistance. Rather than miss out on doing the right thing on Mothers Day, one of them even brought her mum along to help out.

Jonathan Lee with his Wheels On Fire bike service was kept on his toes and I'd like to thank him for the prizes he donated.

As always, the Peak District National Park ranger service folk were very supportive and allowed us to get on with the event unhindered. There will be a donation of £2 for each entrant going to the PDNP as no charge is made for use of the venue. 

 

One bit of sad news which might mean something to those of you who have done the race before is that Vic Hallam, who ran the little Dambusters museum in the west tower of the dam next to the transition, finally lost his struggle with cancer last year. Vic was a true gentleman and a great help the first time I put the event on in 2013, and out of the good of his heart produced 50 commemorative mugs for the first 50 finishers in his workshop at home. He was a big part of the valley and he will be sorely missed by many people. He crosses my mind each time I have a cup of tea from the mug in our house.

I hope you enjoy, or enjoyed, your beer from an old running friend of mine Rob Atkin who, these days, runs a fine enterprise in his brewing shed behind his house. Look out for Wolds Farm Matlock. He's already a prize winning brewer. 

The results are below. There might be the odd error in recording who did which run first. Unfortunately the heavy traffic left the cadets in their big vehicle arriving a little later than planned and it was a rush to get to their marshal points which is where the recording took place. Let me know if any need altering.

Finally, thanks to everyone who took part. The weather was a great help, but it's so good to see everyone enjoying themselves, hanging around and chatting at the finish line and making the most of this beautiful area we have as our playground. 

                                                                            

Enjoy yourselves.

Karl.
