Best display from runners

MEMBERs of the Wirksworth Running Club team turned in a best ever team performance in the Booths Decorators League at Teversal Grange last week.

With two of the five races already run, the mens team have got every chance of beating Ripley into seventh place overall and the ladies are looking good for fourth place overall, with a chance of sneaking a third spot in one of the last three fixtures.

The highlight of the night was Joel Stevens’s eighth place overall and fourth in his age category. Sandy Grimes was first home for the ladies, first in her age category and third lady overall, meaning another great performance, so she is looking good for an individual prize again this year. Ceri Stewart and Chris Summers were BDL debutants on the night and proved a valuable addition to the team. Race three is at Shipley Park on June 14. For more details on the club, go to
