Route information
The runs are over firm compacted limestone and cinder surfaces on former railway tracks making road running shoes ideal. There is one road crossing, at about 14 miles on the marathon course, and a little over 1 mile after the start of the half marathon.
The marathon starts at Thorpe and follows the Tissington Trail, up the dales to north of Parsley Hay, where it does an about turn then takes a left fork to follow the High Peak Trail. From here it undulates level till it joins the half marathon part of the route at Friden. After this the track descends in three stages, at about 21, 22½ and 24½ miles, the last descent being about 1-mile-long down the steep incline to the Cromford canal at High Peak Junction. At this
point, the canal crossing directly ahead is ignored in favour of a right turn and heading along the canal path for a short distance until the next bridge is reached. After crossing the bridge and turning left, there's just over a mile to go along the tow path before turning right into Cromford meadows for the finish.
What's included
The half marathon prize-giving will take place just before the first marathon runners are due, at about 1.30 pm, and
the marathon prizes will be given out between 3.30 and 4.00 pm.
