Route description

THE COURSE

This is a rare opportunity to run a half marathon in Derbyshire without hills! The race is a point-to-point race from Parsley Hay to Ashbourne along the traffic-free Tissington Trail. Coach transport will take you from the Race HQ in Ashbourne to the Race Start in Parsley, you then run back along the trail to reach the finish! The route is slightly downhill virtually all the way, so it's a great course for runners of all abilities and a fantastic introduction to the half marathon distance for runners of all abilities.

Although the route is traffic-free, the trail will still be open to other trail users, including cyclists, walkers and horse-riders.

FIRST AID

Private medical services will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. Please note that due to the nature of the trail, it is not possible to provide contiuous supervision all along the course. Should you become unwell, you will be advised to alert a marshal, who will then arrange assistance for you. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

This is a fabulous event, really well organised from the bus pick ups to the medal giving out. Course is so pretty and trails are in good condition with plenty of water and cheering crowds where the terrain allowed. The course is a gentle downhill so a really good chance of a PB but to be honest I was just there for the scenery and buddied up with a couple of first time halfers and we ran together over the line.

Fantastic race with huge PB potential.. I have now completed it 4 times and it gets better each year. The bus journey is organised with military precision. The staged start prevents any hold ups as everyone finds their pace when setting off.The water stations en route are just in the places. Do the race - you won’t be disappointed.

We love this race, came across it by chance when in the area walking. We went on the waiting list and secular place. Will be running for the third time this year. It’s well organised, the scenery is beautiful and we now stay in the area and have a well deserved beer in the evening. 🍻

What can I say...Superbly well organised and buses to the start(so can leave car in carpark). The route is gorgeous so keep looking around you, magic! Atmosphere a little low at start, as it was cold and drizzling, but as sun came out everyone's face lit up. Would I recommend it...ABSOLUTELY!!😁😁 Didn't run it last year as injured, so my place was given to someone on the waiting list and my place was deferred. Bonus😁

This was my first and so far only half marathon. It was a great choice for a first timer, mostly gentle downhill or flat on good trail surfaces, great views and brilliant cafe in Ashbourne. Another key point for me was the availability of loos along the route. I just needed the security of knowing they were there. The train shaped medal is my top trophy and much admired by the grandkids. I still wear my T shirt with pride and hope I can get a place to repeat the experience. If I do that I would start a bit further up the pack so that I saw other runners for longer There’s plenty of room for overtaking and it can feel lonely on your first half although the volunteers cheered me on to my 2hrs 36 mins finish. Not bad for a first timer aged 63.

Love this race so much, I'm doing it again this year. The organisation is outstanding and very flexible and friendly- we had to defer because of family issues and this was handled beautifully. The course has fab views and with a gentle downhill, great potential for a PB. I knocked 8 minutes off my half marathon PB.

this was my first half marathon and I was very nervous, the great staff and fab atmosphere helped settle the nerves and by the time I arrived at the start I felt fine. The course was very pretty with views to distract and enjoy, the refuelling points were well stocked and the volunteers were great with their support and encouragement. I have booked again for this year, see you there.

This race can’t be faulted! From the friendly atmosphere at the registration point to the chunks of malt loaf as you cross the finish line, everything has been thought of.The course is beautiful, never crowded and slightly downhill almost all the way so great for a PB.Great medal and Ashbourne is a brilliant place for a restorative cuppa or pint afterwards.One of our very favorites.
