Simon Brister was the lone MAC who took part in the Midland Masters AC X Country Championships held at Aldersley Stadium, Wolverhampton.

The Kinder Trial Fell Race (18k/650m) took place last Saturday. This is a very tough orienteering race, demanding good navigational skills, and Tom Brunt continued his tradition of being first man back with Nicky Spinks first lady.

The final race in the hotly-contested Booths Decorators League (BDL) takes place on Sunday (8th) at Holmebrook Country Park, Chesterfield. This race will also be the final race in the Senior Grand Prix Series 2014/2015.

The Matlock Athletic Club White Peak Marathon and ‘Swift Half’ race entries went live on February 1st. Entry forms can be downloaded from the White Peak Events link on the MAC Website.
