The Monsal Trail Half Marathon takes in the stunning, traffic-free Monsal Trail - one of the most iconic of Peak District trails - with a flat-ish, good surface throughout. The Monsal Trail, is a former Midland railway line and the route will take you through four railway tunnels plus across the spectacular Monsal Viaduct. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this half marathon is ideal for Spring marathon training.
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 - this race will be an out and back race from the former Bakewell Station.
The race has a strict entry limit and will sell out, so an early entry is recommended to secure your place. Suitable for experienced runners but also a great introduction to the half marathon distance for runners of all abilities.

The Monsal Trail Half Marathon & 10K routes
The race starts and finishes at Bakewell Station and heads along the Monsal Trail to a turnaround point at Miller’s Dale, before returning to Bakewell and the finish. The course is multi terrain, on a mixture of tarmac and hard track, and will take you through three long railway tunnels - note, your GPS device may not work!
The course will be traffic-free but will be used by other Trail users including walkers, dog walkers, horses and cyclists. We ask that all runners keep to the left hand side of the trail, to be aware of, and respect, other trail users and take extra care where the trail narrows.
