We have been extensively researching into what runners consider important, and sustainability is fast becoming the most important area. Click HERE to see what RunThrough is doing for sustainability.

T-Shirts at events have been a hot topic mainly around them not being a high enough quality to wear on a regular basis. So we have decided to tackle this by offering a T-Shirt CLICK HERE with a retail value of £22 for £12 with the addition of the event logo printed on the chest. These are to be collected at the Kit Stall on the day.

(2024 T-shirt design coming soon!)

Here at RunThrough we are always looking for likeminded people to join our community. We always value an extra pair of hands and would love for you to come along and help us! From managing stalls at the event village to handing out medals at the finish, our volunteers are a critical part of what make RunThrough events so special! If you fancy volunteering with us as a volunteer at his event or any of our other events please click HERE

ONCE YOU ENTER YOU WILL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RACE PACK AND THE BIG DAY WILL BE SENT CLOSER TO THE EVENT – ENJOY!

The Courses

22K Route- Click HERE to download GPX

The 22k route consists of a hilly loop on a mix of surfaces including trail, gravel and road. The route involves climbing Win Hill while enjoying unbelievable views of Ladybower Reservoir to the north. After traversing the ridge you descend to your first Aid Station. A scenic, rolling section takes you south along the water’s edge to the second Aid Station in Thornhill before returning via Aston to the finish line at Hope Showground.

52K Ultra Route- Click HERE to download GPX

The 52K ultra route consists of an undulating loop on a mix of surfaces including trail, gravel and road. Starting at Hope Showground you will ascend Win Hill and enjoy breathtaking views of Ladybower Reservoir to the north. After traversing the ridge you descend to a double track gravel road along the waterfront, cross the dam and pass through our Heatherdene Aid Station.
From here you will follow the entire western edge of Labybower reservoir, passing another couple of Aid Stations before climbing again from Howden Dam. You’ll head for the summits of Lost Lad, Dovestone Tor and White Tor before descending back down to cross Ladybower Dam and returning, via the villages of Thornhill and Aston to the finish line at Hope Showground.

Additional Information

Due to the nature of this event it is going to be cup-less. This means that we WILL NOT be providing bottled water on course.  Every finisher will receive a bottle of Water after they finish.

Instead, we will have Aid Stations on both the 22k and 52K courses. At these Aid Stations we will provide basic food supplies and un-bottled water in jugs that our marshals can use to refill you water bottles/flasks. We recommend that all Half Marathon and 50K runners use a hand flask, running belt or vest with which to carry essential items, as well as food and water.
