The White Peak 'Down in a Shot' 10k

Festival of running update - Postponed to 2022 
We plan to reschedule the event for Saturday 21st May 2022
The Matlock Athletic Club Festival of Running (comprising the  Ian Milne White Peak Marathon, Swift Half Marathon  'Down in a Shot' 10k) was scheduled to take place on Saturday 26th June 2021. The Government roadmap indicates that step 4 allowing gatherings without restrictions will have occurred by that date but we have been unable to obtain permissions from the local authorities to stage the event due to their ongoing Covid restrictions on organised events. 
We know that runners are keen to get back into action. We plan to reschedule the event for Saturday 21st May 2022. Please note that the event will be subject to licences being granted by the landowners and Association of Running Clubs, and compliance with any government restrictions that are in place at the time. Runners will be contacted directly (using the email address provided when entering the race) with further information. 
 

 

Welcome to the homepage for the Down in a Shot 10k, the new speedy young member of the MAC White Peak Festival of Running. This may be the fastest 10k you will enter and joins the popular Ian Milne White Peak marathon and Swift Half marathon in offering runners a variety of distances on the scenic High Peak Trail to choose from . All three races will be staged at the same time, the huge benefit you will gain from this race is you get all the downhills - the course has a nett gain of 800ft+ of descent. So it will be fast, very fast!!!!!

 There will be a generous prize list on offer  PLUS bonus prizes of £100 to the winners of the mens and ladies races should they finish in under 30.00 minutes in the mens race and 34.00 minutes in the ladies race. And we believe those times are achievable targets on this course.

 The entry system opens at 8.00am on Friday morning 1st November 2019 and we expect the 150 places to sell-out very quickly. It is online entry only through Bookitzone via the link below where full details of the race can be found.
