Remember to bring everything on the Kit List
1) The main car park is a 5 minute walk from the venue.
When you sign in you will need to record your car registration plate and the name and telephone number of your emergency contact person on the sign in form.
Hopefully many of you are sharing lifts and will be in an unfamiliar car. Unless you want to walk back to your car to double check it would be wise to write the car registration down- on you hand, or your phone, etc before you come to sign in.
2) Also we would like to remind you that you MUST show your numbers to the marshals at the start, the finish, at checkpoint 3 (Hope) and then at checkpoints 5&6 (Bamford untimed road crossing). It is part of the event safety protocol. It is part of the FRA rules. Last year we had 3 runners who were annoyed with the marshals for asking to see their number. Our marshals are voluteeners doing this for a good cause, doing this to allow you to enjoy the event. Failure to display your number = disqualification.
£12 until Dec 3st
£15 after December 31st
£18 on the day
Do not underestimate this 16 miler. It journeys through some lovely countryside taking in some iconic Peak District vistas. You’ll be up Dirtlow Rake, down Cave Dale and through Castleton, onto the Great Ridge with views over the Vale of Edale, then shouldering Win Hill to drop down to Ladybower. Fast running from here via Bamford and Shatton leads to one final climb which seems to go on forever, to descend Bradwell edge and so back to the finish.
Almost follows the same route as the summer race (see full route description below) but is actually a very different animal because of the changed conditions. The descent into Cave Dale can be slick at any time of year but add a few degrees of frost and you’d better be watching your feet rather than lookup at the majesty of Peveril Castle! Equally the trail from Ladybower can seem like hard work in summer yet in winter it feels like hard-won respite from the bitter westerlies which were battering you on the tops. Extra kit may be needed on the day so bring it! We have also introduced a short untimed section for the Bamford road crossing and a simpler, easier to follow, sting in the tail finish!
If needed we will add the route description for the bad weather routes shortly before the event
