The route has been chosen because of its stunning scenery and toughness. Whilst most of the route is on good tracks and Public Rights of Way it also crosses some tricky terrain where navigation skills may be needed.

Whilst developing the race we have worked closely with local landowners and the Peak District National Park Authority to ensure that the race is sustainable and avoids sensitive areas. For this reason there are some strict route restrictions in place on some areas of the race. Please follow these wherever indicated.

The route will be marked in some areas but for 50% of the time navigation will be necessary. Sport ident dibbing stations will be in place along the route each of these must be visited, failure to do so will mean disqualification from the race.

The race will part of a festival of running to be held at Whirlow Farm Hall in Sheffield (camping available). As well as the 30 mile race there will be several other races starting and finishing over the weekend.

Please note that strict cut-off times will be in place at each Support Station.
