COVID-19 INFORMATION

We will be following all government and local guidelines at the time of the event. Obviously, the pandemic is evolving all the time so we will inform you about the exact guidelines that we will be using in our pre-race email that you'll receive 10 days before the event date.

C-19 PLAN
Rasselbock Running has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

The Hardwick Hobble is a six-hour challenge on a looped course around the amazing National Trust Heritage site at Hardwick Hall.

You may attempt to complete as many laps as possible over the full six hours, or you may choose to finish just one, the choice is yours and you don't have to decide how far you're running until you're running! The course will take you around the stunning grounds of the Hardwick Estate, from the ponds and farmlands to past the house itself.

The route is still being finalized but should be around 5.5km long, so 5 laps is a Half Marathon, 9 laps or more will class as an Ultra.

At Rasselbock we like to put on events how we'd like to have them. No stress, pressure, a great bunch of runners, and a small entry pool so everyone can meet each other. You can decide on the day how far you'd like to run so there are no worries if you're having a "bad running day". Just complete one lap of the event and you're classed as a finished.

How to Get There

After leaving the M1 at junction 29 you’ll want to briefly turn onto the A6175 before taking a left onto Mill Lane. After around a mile you’ll want to take a left crossing underneath the motorway towards Hardwick Estate and Ault Hucknall. After passing Stainsby Mill the road will split and you’ll see the welcome sign for Hardwick, take the right-hand route through the estate gates. Follow the estate road for 1.3 miles and then follow the directions to the car park.

Parking

There is plenty of parking available at the Hall due to it being a National Trust site. Parking for the day is £3 although if you are a National Trust member then the parking is free.

Location

From the car park, you should be able to see the stating gazebo and event flags in the opposite direction of the house. There will also be the standard bright yellow arrow signs directing you to Race HQ.

Course Details

The course is being finalized and will be released soon. But we can guarantee that it'll take you through the stunning ground of the Hardwich Estate, around the farmlands and ponds before making your way up "the" hill towards the stately home itself.

The route will be roughly 5km long and you need only complete one lap in the six hours to be classed as a finisher.

The event will be taking place on a National Trust site that will still be open to the public. Runners will not have the right of way and we will need to be considerate to all the other users of the area, be it walkers, cyclists, families, etc. The route will be avoiding the busiest visitor areas but please be aware of other users on the site.
