The 15k route takes you through some of the most scenic parts of Sheffield and the Peak District
Starting from near Dore & Totley station, the route takes you through the ancient woodlands of Ecclesall Woods, up the beautiful Limb Valley, over the Houndkirk Road, through the National Trust Logshaw Esate, down through Padley Gorge and then along the River Derwent to Hathersage.
Yes, there will be a cut off time. Ideally we'd like you to beat the train that arrives into Hathersage station at 12.32. However, the final cut-off is 1pm. To meet this there will be cut-off times at key checkpoints along the way. This gives you 3 hours to do 15km.
We will have a vehicle at each of the key checkpoints which will transport you to the finish area in Hathersage. You can then get the coach back to Dore & Totley if you've booked it, or of course the train.
The terrain is varied. You could probably make it round in road shoes if the weather is dry, but we would recommend trail shoes if you have them.
Yes, we will be having a bag drop area at the start, and all bags will be transported to the finish area in Hathersage once the race is underway. Although we keep an eye on the bags during the race, they are left at your own risk. Please follow signage at registration.
No. Under UK athletic rules, competitors are not permitted to wear headphones during the race.
Toilets are available at the start/finish area.
No, we don't plan to have feed stations. We recommend that you carry some snacks of your own and some water. However, if the weather is hot we will provide some water refill stations
You need to notify a marshall and hand in your timing chip and race number, they will then contact race control and organise transport to the finish area for you.
We will accept transfers upto 10th August. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to transfer your entry. We will need the name and date of birth of the person who you are transferring to. Unfortunately we cannot defer entries.
