Roche Abbey Trail Running FestivalA634, Maltby, Rotherham S66, UK

Roche Abbey is definitely a hidden gem, its not very well known, and nevertheless its very beautiful. Roche Abbey is nestled away in South Yorkshire near the picturesque village of Maltby. The races will start and finish within the grounds of the glorious Roche Abbey and will encompass trail and track running through Lord Scarboroughs land, which originally formed part of Sherwood Forest.

Roche Abbey was founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks; it was once home to 50 monks and 20 lay brothers. It is beautifully set in a valley landscaped by Capability Brown. The ruins of Roche Abbey are now the centre piece of the beautifully designed landscape.

Apparently Roche Abbey is a paranormal hotspot with lots of scary activity. The Abbey house which is only 240 years old, which now houses the Abbey shop as many tales surrounding it. One tale is of a Lady in Grey who can be seen looking out of the upstairs window where the sound of a wailing child can also be heard. Towards the end of the Abbey there lies a small stone coffin and it is said if one stares at it long enough, a face will appear.. Yikes!

So come running with us for miles with smiles and enjoy the hidden away treasures in this lesser known part of the world.

Maverick inov-8 X Series Peak District76 Castleton Rd, Hope, Hope Valley S33 6RD, UK

Starting in the small village of Hope in the Heart of the Peak District national Park, our Peak X-series event is back for a third time with a brand new Ultra distance route.

The Peak District event may have the least vertical ascent of our X-series races and may weave through a National Park which is known for small quaint towns, local scarecrow competitions, and rolling landscapes frequently used in film adaptations of Jane Austen novels, but dont be fooled these four routes will require all your trail running strength.

Our Peak District event starts off steep by taking you up the famous Win Hill, where all runners will then take in the famous Lady Bower Reservoir. The routes dont get easier as the local tors just keep coming until the last few kilometres where all runners summit Lose Hill before descending back into the village of Hope.

The Ultra Distance has been added to the Peaks event for 2019, this takes you out to a new area of the peak district, winding down through valleys, crossing stunning streams and climbing up to Alport Castle, before heading across some open moorland where the Famous grouse roam. You will then re-join the marathon route and continue on towards black ashop moor.

Whether youre coming from South Wales, South England or the City of London, the village of Hope in the Peak district is centrally located and easily accessible for trails of all abilities to set themselves an serious challenge. With a train station located in the village of Hope itself those in London can leave from St. Pancras and be at our venue in less than 3 hours, ready for a trail run event that they wont forget.
