Set in the picturesque Peak District National Park, this course offers runners a beautiful trail marathon and constant views throughout. The mixed terrain makes this a tough, but interesting course to run and is a great entry point for those looking to get into trail running.

Your organiser

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.

Did the Marathon 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! … read more
