Route information
Half Marathon
A point-to-point route in Derbyshire, this route starts in Parsley Hill and follows the traffic-free Tissington Trail all the way to Ashbourne. A coach will take you from Race HQ in Ashbourne along to the start line in Parsley, and entrants will run back on the trail to the finish line. A slightly downhill route, this is a great introduction to half marathons.
The route will still be open to other trail users, including cyclists, walkers, and horse-riders, but is primarily traffic-free.

my first ever official half marathon, and it was well organised on the day - even though I managed to mess up autofill of my address and posted my number to Portugal your team onsite sorted me instantly, the loud chap on water station 3 was a great motivator and very friendly. Thank you for a n amazing experience.

This was my first half marathon and I was truly impressed by the superb organisation and the cheery volunteers. I even got a "Happy birthday" from one lovely volunteer at the finishing line. Tissington Trail or Robin Hood? No contest! Tissington all the way. Followed by coffee and cake with our family of supporters, served by fabulous staff at Bramhalls Deli and Cafe,. Ashbourne.
