Where is it?

Tissington Trail, Derbyshire.

How much does it cost?

£15 to sign up

How much do I have to raise?

One of the fastest marathons on the calendar!

Hop on board a bus, taking in the sights of Derbyshire as you are transported to the start line of this beautiful marathon.

After travelling to the start at Thorpe you will follow the Tissington Trail, up the dales to north of Parsley Hay, where you will join the High Peak Trail.

From here the route undulates level until it joins the half marathon part of the route at Friden.

After this the track descends (That’s right, it goes downhill!) 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.

This beautiful marathon truly does showcase all that Derbyshire has to offer.

Breathtaking scenery, 7 feed stations along the marathon course and supporters at 10 locations along the way.

This is the perfect event for both marathon newcomers and seasoned marathon runners alike.

“I Just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant event on Saturday. Amazing course. Brilliant organisation. The volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. I ran the full marathon and will be back time and time again.
