High Peak 40. 17/09/2016.
Race 10 of 12 in the 2016 Runfurther ultra-running championships.

This is the first time since 1998, when I first did this event, where I attended but didn't run. Still recovering from this year's injuries and niggles, which have been knocking on the door for a few years now, I walked and bimbled around and took photos instead.

It was exciting and something of a novelty to run the 3 miles back from the final checkpoint with 9th-placed Adam Worrallo. I'd just arrived at the King Sterndale checkpoint when he climbed over the stile to it. I'd been looking out for him to present him with his Runfurther 'Giraffe' neckwear for completing four Runfurther counters. The presentation ceremony was performed at the finish line.

The album photo shows Nigel Dean as he walks towards checkpoint 2 at Taxal. He has completed every High Peak 40. He received a special and well deserved award for this.
