This traffic-free trail is ideal for a cracking marathon and, because the route is slightly downhill on the way back, you've got gravity on your side!
The race is suitable for both experienced and first-time marathon runners.
The route gently climbs up through glorious Peak District scenery before turning around with a 13.1 mile downhill finish – so fast times are likely. The race is an out and back from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay along the traffic-free Tissington Trail. The route gently climbs uphill towards Parsley Hay before heading slightly downhill and all the way back; its a great cours for runners of all abilities and a fantastic introduction to the marathon distance for runners of all abilities.
Although the route is traffic-free, the trail will still be open to other trail users, including cyclists, walkers and horse-riders.
