Dark Peak usually turn out in strength -for this local race, making the locals -feel like -foreigners, but not this year. They were fewer in number and you have to look down to 16th place to find their first finisher - and they only managed three in the first fifty, when in previous years they have placed in
the first six and had winners. Rumour has it that the Dark Peak priesthood had sent their
missionaries to new races in far off places. In fact to all points of a Silva compass from where some of them will, no doubt, find their way back.
Micah Wilson won for the second year running, in wet conditions and in a tight finish, local runner, Ian Higginbottom, a confirmed road and track man snatched second place with vet Ricky Wilde having an exceptionally good run to place 5th. Carol Haigh got in the first twenty and only one of the Dark Peak contingent beat her.
