High Peak Marathon 2009

I ran the High Peak Marathon with a team from Glossopdale Harriers. Starting at 11:45 Friday night we ran around the 42 mile Derwent water shed traversing the peakland ridge, Win Hill, Stanage, Derwent Edge, Bleaklow in the dark and Kinder and Lords Seat early Saturday to finish second in 9 hrs 6 minutes, aided by expert local knowledge. Vasque North won in 8 hrs 48. After some early jostling for positions we led until the Snake summit (7 hrs in) when Vasque caught us and created the gap. Vasque South were 3rd. Great event. Results will be posted shortly:
