The 2019 GoBigMoor Fell Run and Family Walk has been and gone. This year’s event must rate as the most successful yet, with 120 runners signed up and 111 runners attending on the day and around 50 adults and children taking part in the Family Walk.
The ground was waterlogged, muddy and slippery in places due to the constant rain during the days leading up to the event. This made the going harder than normal but the weather on the day turned out to be perfect for running and walking, cool, dry and clear.
The organisers would like to thank The Arkwright Arms (Bolsover) for providing the wine for the awards and Gunstones Bakery for proving the cakes and buns.
This year’s winner, Aidan Smith, set a new fastest time, completing the 21Km course in 1-hour 28mins and 46 seconds, nearly three minutes faster than the previous course record.
This year’s event coincided with the local Holmesfield Market, an opportunity for those attending the event to pick up some quality food and products. We hope everyone enjoyed the day and will all come back for more next year on Saturday 10th October 2020.
