Ladybower Trail Marathon
The Ladybower Trail Marathon is set in the idyllic beauty of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by the elevated fells within the Derwent Valley. Described by fellow runners as one of the most scenic trail marathons in the Peak District, this one is not to be missed.
A super fast course with very runnable hard packed trail - but don't get too comfortable, we have thrown in a couple of climbs which take you high up onto the Derwent edges, followed by some great technical descending!

Please ensure you leave plenty of time before the race starts to park, it can fill up pretty quickly as especially if the weather is good. We recommend using the lay bys on the way down to the main visitors car park as they are free. However, there is a pay and display car park in the main visitor centre also.
Race Registration will take place from 8.00am. The registration tent is located down by the dam wall, which can seen from the information centre located by the main car park - look out for the signs, it will be well marked.
The course has water and feed stations at mile 5, mile 10, mile 15 and mile 20. We would highly recommend also carrying some fluids with you, especially if the weather report shows a hot and humid day.
Marshalls will be placed around the course should you require any assistance. Please ensure all race numbers are visible to the marshals as you will need to check in at each feed station on route.
Edale Mountain Rescue Team will also be on hand, should we require them for any medical emergencies.
We are now a cupless organisation on our feed stations. Please bring your own personal cup if required.
Toilet amenities will be open from 7am and are located in the main visitor car park.
Hot and cold snacks including tea and coffee are available from the kiosk, also located in the main visitor car park.
The course will be fully marked and marshalled so no need for navigation
