The individual event will hold six categories – Senior Male, Senior Female, Veteran Male, Veteran Female, Male over 50 and Female over 50 . (Veteran = over 40)

The route covers some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. At around 12.12 miles the route takes in some of the finest trails in the Peak District. There is roughly 633 metres of ascent and whilst there are no monster climbs the continued hilly nature of the course earmarks this race as a tough one to complete.

The Route

The route has been chosen because of its stunning scenery and the tough nature of the route. Whilst most of the route is on good tracks and Public Rights of Way it also crosses some tricky terrain where navigation skills may be needed.

Whilst developing the race we have worked closely with local landowners and the Peak District National Park Authority to ensure that the race is sustainable and avoids sensitive areas. For this reason there are some strict route restrictions in place on some areas of the race. Please follow these wherever indicated.

The route will be marked in most areas but in the event of poor weather some navigation may be necessary. Sport ident dibbing stations will be in place along the route – each of these must be visited, failure to do so will mean disqualification from the race.

As well as the 12.12 mile race there will be several other races starting and finishing over the weekend.

Please note that strict cut off times will be in place at each Support Station.
Registration: Open from 6pm – 8pm on the 19th August, and from 8am on the 20th August.
