Route description
Route description

The Millstone 100 provides a grand tour of all aspects of the Peak District, and consists of 2 very different loops of approximately 50 miles, with 8,900ft and 7,600ft of elevation gain respectively.

On the first loop participants head north into the night from race HQ in Castleton on a clockwise circuit of the area often referred to as the 'Dark Peak'. This starts with a crossing of the Great Ridge to meet the start of the Pennine Way in Edale, which the course follows over the high fells of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow. After descending from Bleaklow it tracks east across some desolate moorland before turning south towards Margery Hill and the majestic Derwent Edge. The first half is then capped off with two best views in the Peaks from Win and Lose Hill.

For the second half, participants climb back out of Castleton; this time on a loop to the south which is very different, but equally beautiful to, the first half. The high edges of the eastern peak are followed by some respite from the hills as the course follows the Derwent valley through the historic Chatsworth estate. On reaching Darley Dale it turns to begin the final quarter of the 100-miles, which takes in a number of dramatic canyon like dales, before the final iconic descent back to Castleton.

The Limestone 50 is a clockwise circuit to the south of race HQ in Castleton, taking in the second half of the Millstone 100 mile route.

The Peverill 33 may be the shortest of the trio of races, but it doesn't mean the coruse is any less spectacular than the others. It shares the first 16 and last 9 miles with the Limestone 50. In between is a climb out of Baslow to enjoy great views back across the high edges of the eastern peak, and a traverse of Longstone Edge as the course descends to rejoin the longer routes at the iconic Monsal Head.
