Organiser's Description

Take to one of the most iconic trails of the Peak District for stunning and traffic-free racing joy!

This is a Nice Work race
This means that it is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.

Event Overview:
This one is a corker. Traffic free and with a flat-ish surface throughout, the Monsal Trail is made up from a former Midland railway line taking you through four railway tunnels and across the spectacular Monsal Viaduct. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this half marathon is ideal for Spring marathon training. It's suitable for experienced runners but also a great introduction to the half marathon distance for runners of all abilities.
Or, perhaps you fancy the 10k option...?
A racing treat at any distance, you'll want to join us for this sell-out race!

Course Details:
The race starts and finishes at Bakewell Station and heads along the Monsal Trail to a turnaround point at Miller’s Dale, before returning to Bakewell and the finish. The course is multi terrain, on a mixture of tarmac and hard track.
Runners in the 10k will be following the same half marathon route, but turn at the 5k mark (inside the first tunnel) to return back to the finish at Bakewell Station.

The course will be traffic-free but will be used by other Trail users including walkers, dog walkers, horses and cyclists. We ask that all runners keep to the left hand side of the trail, to be aware of, and respect, other trail users and take extra care where the trail narrows.

Route Map:
You can view the route maps below. You'll be able to download the route in different formats including GPX.
