Tissington Trail Marathon

Ashbourne, Derbyshire

Organiser's Description

Join us for this brand new marathon along the picturesque Tissington Trail. Brought to you by the same team that manages the Tissington Trail Half Marathon, the race will be an out and back race from the start of the trail at Mappleton Road to Parsley Hay.

The route gently climbs up through glorious Peak District scenery before turning round with a 13.1 mile downhill finish – so fast times are likely.

The Tissington Trail, the site of a former railway line from Ashbourne to Buxton, runs along a 13 mile route from Parsley Hay to Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for a cracking marathon. Running one way is slightly downhill - so you've got gravity on your side virtually the whole way back down the course!

A lovely day out

The Tissington Trail follows the route of an old railway line and runs north from Ashbourne in Derbyshire. It is a low key event and entirely off-road. The trail is of good quality and shared by walkers and cyclists. The weather was good - cool to start off with - not too hot. It is an out and back marathon with plenty of places for supporters to gather and see you run by - twice! There was easy parking at the leisure centre where it started.there was even a cafe at the start.
