Solstice 42 TT - Men on Sunday 21st June 2020

The long-standing High Peak Marathon has been getting increasingly difficult to get permission for in its usual place of late February (and overnight). To the extent that permission was not granted this year, despite the herculean efforts of Richard Bradbury and Nicky Spinks. The advent of Lockdown and distancing requirements - which have prevented all other forms of organised running - presented a great opportunity to run this iconic route in a different format. Some 16 teams (failed to) line up for the start at the road crossing of their choice, on the day of their choice, at the time of their choice (between Friday and Sunday of the solstice weekend). There was a stipulation that runners in the same team had to observe the same start as the rest of their team though!

The weather proved a mixed bag. Friday was wet. Saturday was mostly sunny and Sunday had a bit of both.

The aberrations of summer conditions and daylight made this an entirely different proposition to the traditional HPM. It turns out there is a lot of running in this course, with a 15km section of (very much improved) bog in the middle.The bog got the last word though; swallowing Will whole a few steps before the firm made up paths return for the last section of the race.

Notable was Harriet’s outstanding win (overall), Hannah’s return to running after an absence of round-a-bout 5 years (give or take the odd Bradfield Boundary).Also pleasing to note is Willy’s return to the fray after a nasty bout of too much work.

Thanks are due to Ian Fitz for being cruel enough to induce us to do this. Rumours abound that he’salso cruel enough to do the same to us for the other solstice. That would raise the possibility of a Watershed/Boundary double for those with truly undissolvable feet.

For the record the course was:
