Early March Round Up

The big news of this week was SNOW! which sadly forced the organisers of the High Peak Marathon to cancel the race. This was greatly disappointing for our ladies team who had been training very hard. The wintery conditions meant that running on the hills over the weekend was reduced to thigh and waist deep drift bashing.
