Sunday 4 December 2016 – the annual Hayfield Santa Dash, organised jointly by The Hayfield May Queen Committee and Kinder Mountain Rescue Team, took place under (nearly) ideal conditions; dry underfoot, several Santas, no injuries and only one lost runner who turned up at the finish line shortly after – a grand day out.
First in was Damien Kilpin in an amazing time of 31 minutes and 31 seconds for the 6.5 km loop. Hot on his heels was the first lady, Kate Davies in 25 minutes 24 seconds.
The under 16’s dash was won by Andrew McDonald in 7 minutes and 10 seconds and the first girl in was Amelia Aldridge in 9 minutes 45 seconds.
Next year’s race scheduled for Sunday 3rd December – put it in your diary NOW and tell all your (running) friends.
