Brackenfield Village Association AGM

Brackenfield Heritage Cafe

Thursday 8th June at 10am at Brackenfield Church Hall

Visiting Speaker - Marianne Heading

"Yukon Arctic Ultra" 

  • Marianne, first European female finisher and winner of the 300 mile Yukon Arctic Ultra race ‘the world’s coldest and toughest ultra'
  • Marianne grew up in Ashover and moved back to the village in 2015 with partner Mike.
  • In 2009 Marianne took up ultra distance running becoming the first European female to complete the YAU in 2011 and in 2019 returning to win the race outright.
  • Temperatures on the race regularly reach -40°c and competitors must pull a sled containing all their survival gear for the 300 miles.
  • There are just 7 checkpoints along the 300 mile wilderness route, some being no more than wall tents with a wood burning stove, others first nation village community centres.
  • The race is non-stop, once the race has started the clock runs until the finish line is crossed, so managing rest, avoiding frostbite and staying safe are priority.


Join us for a taste of extreme adventure, hot drinks, cakes and good company

"Stories of Footpaths and Folk"
Richard, Local Rambling Raconteur
Richard is a former headteacher at Ashover School who has lived and worked in the area for much of his adult life. In retirement, he voluntarily involved himself with the 50+ miles of public rights of way in Ashover Parish. Richard liaises with anybody who's interested: landowners, riders, horse and bike riders, walkers, The Ramblers, Peak and Northern Footpath Society, farmers and business owners. He also talks with The Parish Council, The County Council and The District Council and groups from neighbouring parishes! Richard was an excellent source of advice and support during the development of Brackenfield Heritage Trail. He lives with his wife in Littlemoor.
