Pre-Race: For athletes staying over on Tuesday night. Hayfield and the surrounding area have lots of pub-hotel and private b&b options as well as a campsite. The nearest YHA’s are in Edale & Castleton (you’ll need a car or pre-booked taxi for these). A search on Google will provide plenty of possibilities.
Getting to Hayfield: There is very limited long-term car parking in Hayfield. We’d like to remain on good terms with our community and not cause traffic chaos in the small village. So, we highly recommend getting dropped off for Race Registration, or taking public transport. During the day, there are regular bus services from Buxton, New Mills, Glossop and Stockport. There are regular main-line train services to the nearest stations, New Mills (2 miles from Hayfield) and Glossop. These taper off in the evening so please check the current timetables. Taxi services are available, these are better pre-booked from New Mills. There is a serviced taxi rank outside the station in Glossop.
Getting home: Kirkby Stephen railway station is on the Settle-Carlisle line with connections to Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham and further afield.
