Held under UKA Rules. UKA Licence applied for.
The race returns for a sixth time in 2017 and this sell-out race continues to attract rave reviews for its scenery, course and organisation. The 2016 race once again sold out in record time and for 2017 we have, once again, secured two dates for the race. Prices for 2017 include bus transport to the start at Parsley Hay.
The race will sell out so you are advised to secure your place as soon as possible for 2017.
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 half marathon. Running one way is slightly downhill - so you've got gravity on your side virtually the whole way down the course!
This will be a rare opportunity to run a trail half marathon without hills! The race will be a point to point race from Parsley Hay to Ashbourne and coach transport takes you from the Race HQ in Ashbourne to Parsley Hay. You then run back to the finish!
The 2017 event will be making a donation to Newlife Foundation for Children - http://www.newlifecharity.co.uk/
