High Peak Trail - 16/11/2010

I was in Matlock for an interview for a new project for Derbyshire Council, and managed to get in a run as it got dark before heading home. I parked up at the Middleton Top visitor centre and ran the final bit of the High Peak Trail I'd not done - Middleton Top to High Peak Junction.

This goes down two steep (about 1 in 8) inclines to reach the canal in the Derwent Valley, with a fairly level section in between. When I got back to Middleton I topped the distance up to six miles and then swapped into the minimalist "almost barefoot" shoes and did another mile.

Nice running on a good trail: 7.1 miles, 960' in 1h 17min.
