Whirlow Hall Farm, located in the beautiful Sheffield suburb of Whirlow, is proud to host the Whirlow 10K Trail – part of the Dig Deep running weekend.

Proceeds from the 10K race go directly to support our work with children across South Yorkshire. Whether it’s developing a healthy relationship with food, seeing an animal for the first time or helping to get their lives back on track. We help thousands of local children and young people to raise their aspirations and improve their life chances. We believe every child, whatever their background or circumstances, deserves an opportunity to learn and develop to their full potential. With your support, our team strives to provide access and opportunities for all children here in Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

The Route

The route has been chosen because of its stunning scenery and the varied nature of the route. It’s also chosen to be a ‘challenge’ so it’s certainly undulating, mostly uphill in various gradients for the first half and mainly downhill for the second, with a good last push uphill! Whilst most of the route is on good tracks and Public Rights of Way it also crosses some tricky terrain. Expect to run on mostly manicured trails, grassland, field edges, some road and a little open moorland. Please be sure to study the route map before the race.

The route will be marshalled at key points and well signposted, please be sure to follow the specified route exactly as we have been careful to get the relevant permissions for the areas it covers. Please take extra care when crossing roads, we will do our utmost to notify and slow traffic at the crossings using marshals and signage but it is your responsibility to stay alert and only cross when safe to do so. The race will be part of a festival of running to be held at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust in Sheffield. As well as the Whirlow Trail Challenge race there will be the 60 mile Ultra Tour of the Peak District, a 30 mile Ultra and a 12.12mile race. Camping and parking is available at the venue, please notify us in advance if you would like to camp.

Full payment is requested with each booking. If entries have not exceeded the limit race entry on the day will be possible, however it is advisable to book in advance to confirm your race. You will receive your race number at registration on the day of the event.
