The Monsal Trail Half Marathon takes in the stunning, traffic-free Monsal Trail - one of the most iconic of Peak District trails - with a flat-ish, good surface throughout. The Monsal Trail, is a former Midland railway line and the route will take you through four railway tunnels plus across the spectacular Monsal Viaduct. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this half marathon is ideal for Spring marathon training.
Brought to you by the same team that manages the Tissington Trail Half Marathon - which regularly features in the Runner's World top 10 UK trail races - this race will be an out and back race from the former Bakewell Station.
The race has a strict entry limit and will sell out, so an early entry is recommended to secure your place. Suitable for experienced runners but also a great introduction to the half marathon distance for runners of all abilities.
Prizes from the event are generously sponsored by Big Bobble Hats who will be present on the day of the event. Photos from the event will be provided by New Pixels Sport Photography.
