Report from John Thorpe -
On Saturday morning 7 Mac's headed over to Queens Park at Chesterfield for the monthly No Walk In The Park 5k race which is organised by North Derbyshire Running Club, With the sun shining and a gentle breeze, conditions were favourable.

Report from Shelley Fairey -Sandbach 2k and 10k saw the Fairey family descend on the Cheshire town. A really lovely children’s run on closed roads sets off the day. Logan had an amazing run coming in 4th place over all and first under 10 in 8.31. Heath and Merryn-Rose ran well too with Merryn-Rose winning the under 6 category. 82 runners took part.
In the 10k 430 runners finished. It’s a fast course with some undulation.
