Hi just popped in to tell you about the White Peak, thanks to Matlock AC, the rugby club and volunteers. What a good day out until the 20 mile cliff edge of course. A pretty warm day, fantastic scenery only 180 ish finishers, good value with a mug/goody bag and coach ride to the start. The first half gently uphill, some great views oft hills, pretty flattish for quite a way, my legs started to seize up after the 19.5 mile water station but there's two long fairly steep downhill bits, what a wheeze, then it was like a scene out of a zombie, day of the living dead movie walking/shuffling along the canal even the 0.2 miles seemed hard but finished in 4.31 then a good feeling, I'd done it. Three days later I'd like to do it again well recommended a hidden gem. There seemed a good mix of marathoners from virgins to old hands, a good start for anyone tired of the flat tarmac.
