Taxi / minibus from Stage 2 finish back to Edale will need to be booked in advance as we pay a holding deposit to the company. You will need to indicate an approximate finish time so that we can schedule taxis as much as possible to avoid you waiting too long. A condition of the taxi hire is that racers are wearing clean clothing and footwear (hence you will need a spare set of clothes in your kit bag). The cost per person for this service is £15.

Did the Stage 1- White Peak (50K) in 2018
Enjoyed the race. Its very much two halves, first half uphill road run, 2nd half much more off road trails. Well organised and everyone was very helpful
Did the Stage 2 - Dark Peak (43K) in 2018
Not enough social media updating . Nice to get a few updates from RD from day one event. Photos of runners and finishers. Aid stations were positioned as arranged but failed to offer any warm drinks ( maybe they were there but not forthcoming) . Food on sat evening would be best left for day one runners , not advertised as pizza / pasta PARTY. Beautiful course and almost navigation fool proof . Poor finishers medal .
