REPORT OF THE 32nd WHITE PEAK WALK

 

Saturday 14th July 2018

A scorcher was predicted and a scorcher we got! – although, to be fair, not as hot as we had anticipated.

We expected that the hot weather over the preceding weeks might deter a few people as indeed it did but from a starting database of 392, we had 117 no-shows which coincidentally was exactly as 2016 and marginally higher than last year so the weather may not have had that much of an impact.

275 people started the event and retirees numbered 24 (there were 35 last year) hence 251 finishers.Results for this year:

First Man John Roberts in 4 hours 19 minutes

First Lady Wona Donnelly in 4 hours 48 minutes

First Male Veteran Rob Turner in 4 hours 40 minutes

First Lady Veteran Yvonne Turner in 5 hours 59 minutes

First Local Man Michael Riley in 7 hours 3 minutes

First Local Lady Paula Riley in 7 hours 3 minutes 

We probably ought to start a family prize – as you can see from the above, we have two husband and wife winning teams: Rob and Yvonne Turner and Michael and Paula Riley 

All the background work that goes into organising the WPW both during the year and on the day is all the more worthwhile when we see all the smiling faces at the checkpoints and at the finish and we really do appreciate all the nice comments that you make, even if they are made through the pain of just completing 26 miles!  

As in previous years 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 an 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. 

The entry form for 2019 will be available on 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! (13th July 2019) 

 

The WPW organising team, Peter, Colin, Al and Mike
