The Courses

Half Marathon Route

The Half Marathon route consists of an hilly loop on a mix of surfaces including trail, gravel and road. The route involves climbing Win Hill and traversing west, all the while enjoying unbelievable views over the reservoir. From here you will descend to a double track road along the waters edge, before crossing the dam into Heatherdene parking and your first Aid Station. From here you climb once again, this time up onto Bamford Edge. after running along the top of the rock crags you will wrap around Lees Wood before returning to Bamford and the finish line!

50K Ultra Route

The 50K ultra route consists of an undulating loop on a mix of surfaces including trail, gravel and road. Starting at Bamford Recreation ground 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 make a full circumnavigation of Labybower reservoir, passing two further Aid Stations along the way.

Now it is time to climb again! Heading up towards White Tor before descending back down to cross the A57. The final section of the route runs along top of Stannage Edge, with more stunning views of the surrounding area. Throughout this race you will climb and descend approximately 1500m, a great challenge for anyone looking to complete their first ultra distance trail race.

 

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. We will have bottled water in our Event Village for pre race and also every finisher will receive a bottle of Actiph Water after they finish.

Instead, we will have Aid Stations on both the Half Marathon and 50K 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.
