32.9 miles (53.0 km); 3,986 feet (1,215 m) of ascent (approximate figures although the Chesterfield Round Walk is stated as 34 miles (54.7 km) and the ultra is based on that route with some minor modifications). Some pleasant running through bluebell woods and countryside with a bit of rural circumnavigating Chesterfield.
First Man: Kevin Hoult; 4:30:42 (new course record)
First Lady: 12th overall; Karen Nash: 5:57:37 (new ladies course record)
Ian Challans: 8th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 5:43:25
Steven Jones: 20th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 6:20:52
The weather was kind on the day; starting on the warm side but cooling later. As the day progressed some dark clouds prowled the skies and the heavy rain held off until a few minutes after I had finished which was fortuitous.
