11th Nov 19

Day 1 - National Event in the western part of the Goyt Valley.   Junior selection race for Interland 2020.  

The area is mostly forested, with the longer courses also using open moorland. Full set of courses from White to Blue.

Full Results, including Winsplits, Splitsbrowser, BOF Ranking points and Lost Property can be found on the event page.

Organiser, Paul Jarvis, reports on the incident in the forest:

Those aware of the injured runner in the forest will be pleased to know she was brought out of the forest and then diagnosed with soft tissue and ligament damage but hobbled home on crutches. The kind competitor who sacrificed her run to keep her as warm as possible was also very cold but walked out of the forest.

Thanks go to our competitors who reported the incident so promptly and donated clothing at the scene and also to our first responders who attended the pair quickly.

I have some clothing items to repatriate so if you are still missing items please contact the Organiser through the MDOC website.

Day 2 - Regional Urban Event in Stockport.

The event will use a newly mapped area to the west of the town centre as well as including the multi-level complex central area.

Full Results, including Winsplits, Splitsbrowser and BOF Ranking points can be found on the event page.

A bit of history about Twin Peak

The first Twin Peak was in 1993. MDOC produced the first full colour map of the whole of the Goyt Valley (Errwood is the central reservoir). We had a huge event, 2 Badge events with prizes, a 2-day Long-O for KIMM training, a night event, a quiz. 

1200 people on Saturday, 1400 on Sunday. Entry fee: £12 for the 2 days.

25 years on…..

Permission problems restrict us to just one day in a small part of the Valley, but in honour of the first event we are calling it Twin Peak 2019.

And we offer an urban event in Stockport for the other day.  The courses are incompatible, so no prizes. But we give you another chance to try the Peak District Quiz (much easier now with the internet). It will be published in the Final Details.

Entry numbers ???    Entry fee: £20 for the 2 days.
