Bullock Smithy 56 mile hike
In celebration of his upcoming 50th birthday, Men's captain Richard Hind wanted to complete the Bullock Smithy; a 56 mile hike (was close to 60!) around the Peak District and four nutters; Gemma Hind, Louise Lowe, Julie King & Suzanne Leusby joined him on his adventure. The event started at Hazel Grove, Stockport at 12pm with 24 hours to complete and was incredibly tough both physically and mentally. Richard's superb navigation, especially through the night, got the team round in 23 hours 39 minutes. Suzanne made it to 48 miles before retiring & for someone who doesn't like hills this was an awesome achievement (she forgot to check the elevation before signing up 😂) It was an amazing experience that won't be forgotten (at least while the blisters heal 😂).
Rother Valley Parkrun
Well done to Sam Schaap, one of our youngest members, who recently ran a new PB of 22:36 at Rother Valley parkrun and also achieved a fantastic set of GCSE results.
On his recent visit to Wales John Proffitt called in at the Erddig estate, owned by The National Trust, to run their Park Run, he ran 26:43. The course ran through forest tracks and estate roads, a bit narrow and muddy in places, with a steep hill of 200 mts, 400 mts from finish line. He bettered the over 75 age category by 10:30 secs, Not many sheep farmers over 75 run in Wales!!!!
