Runners brave cold

FIVE Matlock Athletics Club members braved the cold and damp conditions to take part in the Passing Clouds Fell Race from Tittesworth Reservoir on Sunday.

The 15.7km race was made up of very steep ascents and descents, including Ramshaw Rocks, The Roaches and Hen Cloud.

Although there was little visibility on the tops due to mist and a smattering of sleet, everyone completed the race, gaining valuable points in the Club Grand Prix. Participants were Andy Whittaker, Alan Pickering, Nicky Dick, Clive Russell and Jan Forrester. Nicky took 1st LV50 prize and Jan took 1st LV60 prize.
