This Half Marathon & 10K race takes place around the undulating, traffic-free trails surrounding Carsington Water Reservoir. The route offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding Peak District countryside, and both races are ideal as part of a spring marathon training schedule.

Carsington Water is also an ideal family location and perfect for a weekend day out.

The race is 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.

The Carsington Water Half Marathon & 10K Weekend routes

This is an undulating multi-terrain route using the paths and trails around Carsington Water. The Half Marathon is a complete lap plus an out-and-back section with 10K runners completing an out-and-back course. You can expect some inclines along with sections that use the footpaths surrounding the reservoir.

The course has been measured using GPS but, because of its multi terrain-nature, it cannot carry a certificate of course accuracy. The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows and directional cones, as well as being marshalled throughout. There may be the occasional walker and dog walker, so you should exercise care when running.

Event Details

What’s Included

Prizes from the event are generously sponsored by Big Bobble Hats, who will be present on the day of the event.

Raceday Logistics

Let's Do This always recommend that you arrive at least 45 mins before your start time so that you have enough time to both register and prep for the race start.

Facilities:

Toilets
Refreshments
On Site Parking - parking charges apply

First Aid:

St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

Results:

Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer to help at any of our events, there are a variety of roles available from marshalling to helping with event set-up. We offer our volunteers a free entry to a future race and, in some cases, expenses are available. If interested, please contact: [email protected]

FAQs

How do I attach my timing chip?

Your timing chip is incorporated into your race number and should not be removed. Please place the race number on the front of your vest/shirt and not on your leg or back.

How do I attach my race number?

Please attach your race number to the front of your running top or vest using safety pins or clips, securing it on all four corners. Please don’t attach your number to the back of your shirt as it is difficult for our timekeepers and marshals to identify you.

    As a slower runner I like to do the 10k race's that also run a half marathon, that way i'm not keeping the marshalls waiting for me to finish. this race is well organised and so friendly. I know if it is being organised by Nice Work I will be ok and run with a smile on my face
  • Did the Half Marathon – Sunday in 2019

    A lovely event that combines efficient organisation with a friendly, welcoming, low-key approach. The course is a bit undulating but very scenic. As someone who is nearer 60 than 50, I appreciated prizes in 5-year age groups rather than the usual 10 - although I still didn’t win one! Spotted a former world record holder cheering on the runners while his wife directed traffic - which speaks volumes for the spirit of the event.

    Lovely scenic route, not overcrowded. Might end up doing a longer distance due to route being open to public - playing dodge the dog walkers!

    I'm not the fastest of runners but I felt supported all the way round. It was great in areas where faster runners passed us. The scenery was astounding. Great medal.
