After a successful debut, the Tissington Trail Marathon returns to run through picturesque Derbyshire countryside for a second time.
Brought to you by the same team that manages the Tissington Trail Half Marathon, which has established itself as a real favourite with runners and often sells out months in advance. We're proud that the race regularly features in the Runner's World top 10 UK trail races.
The Tissington Trail, the site of a former railway line from Ashbourne to Buxton, runs along a 13 mile route from Parsley Hay to Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, the traffic-free trail is ideal for a cracking marathon and, because the route is slightly downhill on the way back, you've got gravity on your side!

The Tissington Trail Marathon route
This is a rare opportunity to run a marathon in Derbyshire with a 13.1 mile downhill finish! The race is an out-and-back race from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay along the traffic-free Tissington Trail. The route gently climbs uphill towards Parsley Hay before slightly downhill all the way back, so it's a great course for runners of all abilities and a fantastic introduction to the 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.
