REPORT OF THE 31st WHITE PEAK WALK

 

Saturday 8th July 2017

The popularity of the WPW shows no sign of declining and we always have to close the entries early in the year (this year we closed entries in late January). Therefore the repeated message must be to get your entries in for 2018 as soon as possible (bearing in mind that the entry forms will not be available until 1st September)

A “great weather” day this year – bright and sunny with the occasional breeze and dry underfoot – almost perfect conditions

This year we had 288 starters, 253 finishers and 35 retirees

Results for this year:

First Man Billy Naylor in 4 hours 14 minutes

First Lady Wona Donnelly in 4 hours 35 minutes

First Male Veteran Jez Page in 4 hours 39 minutes

First Lady Veteran Sheila Bradley in 5 hours 23 minutes

First Local Man Philip Woolley in 7 hours 46 minutes

First Local Lady We didn’t have a local lady finisher this year

 

 

As in previous year we were ably assisted in the event by Kinder Mountain Rescue Team who did a marvellous job looking after the medical issues of the day and also by RAYNET who looked after all the communications. Without the help of these two teams it would be impossible to consider organising and event like the White Peak Walk.

 

 

As always, we would like thank the many helpers who give their time freely to man the checkpoints, the kitchen and the registration/control desk – without their help, we could not possibly continue to stage this event to the quality that has developed over the years.

 

Both this report and the results are also posted on the website where we will make the entry form for 2018 available but not until 1st September. We do encourage you to fill it out and send it off without delay. The walk always fills early and we like to give previous entrants first crack of the whip.

 

 We look forward to seeing you again next year! (14th July 2018)
