Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be feed stations along the route of the Ladybower Trail Marathon?
Yes, there will be feed stations every 5 miles but runners should make sure they have brought a cup or bottle with them to refill as this event has gone cupless in an effort to limit it's impact on the environment.
Are there toilet facilities at the Ladybower Trail Marathon?
Yes, there will toilets available from 7AM and they can be found near the main visitors car park.
Is there mobile reception at The Ladybower Trail Marathon?
No, there is very poor phone signal in this region and it is therefore very important to check in at every feed station on route. If runners do not check in at each feed station they will be disqualified.

Hello, I'm David the founder of Peakrunners. Along with my wife Amanda we organise running events throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire and beyond. I originally started out in martial arts, where I trained intensively to get myself up to a high competitive level. I competed in full contact kickboxing / mixed martial arts and Brazilian Jujitsu. After gaining my 5th degree blackbelt and successfully running my own mixed martial arts academy, I decided to make the hard choice and close my academy, and follow my dreams of becoming an endurance athlete. My journey began in 2011 when I entered my first endurance race; The Hell on the Humber, a 12hr night run up and down the Humber Bridge. I shortly followed this up with many more 12hr and 24hr events and soon turned my focus into the world of ultrarunning. I've since gone on to compete in many more ultras here in the UK as well as in Europe, including an 8th place finish in the Spine. My focus is to become the best I can be in trail running. And to be honest, my life doesn't have a finish line, as my goals in my life are set very high.

    Great race, organised very well and such a brilliant location, watch out for the big hill though!! 😂
  • Did the event in 2019

    The smallest, friendliest marathon I have done. The scenery the whole way round was beautiful! Terrain was a mixture of packed gravel paths, a small grassy section and some rocky and muddy parts (on the large hill which was challenging in the consistent rain!) Very enjoyable experience, well organised, I'll be forever grateful to the lady at mile 18 for her 10/10 cheering and the orange and haribo! Would definitely recommend!
  • Did the event in 2018
