The third annual Chicken Run fell race took place on Saturday with Sol Clark and Ingrid Storm winning the races.

The course, as in the two previous races, took the runners up Middle Moor in Little Hayfield- on the less well known grouse butts path, down to the bottom of William Clough and along the side of the lovely Kinder Reservoir.

Runners left the school field at 11.30am and the first runner - Sol Clark (Buxton AC) - returned an impressive 41.00 minutes later.

This time he narrowly missed the record set in 2014 by S. Coldrick of 38.40.

First lady back was Ingrid Storm of Chorlton Runners with a time of 50.56.

The 6K loop gave junior runners Lucas Parker and Dan Soles the opportunity to have a great race. Both boys were impressive but Lucas took first place with a time of 29.17, Dan was close behind with a time of 29.31.

The proceeds of this event will help fund the use of the community mini bus, enabling the children of Hayfield Primary School to attend sporting fixtures and enrichment activities both locally and further afield.
