Running along the Tissington Trail

Climb on board for the 2022 Ashbourne Seesaw

Sign up for this award-winning event, known for its beautiful scenery.

The Ashbourne Seesaw takes place next year on Sunday 6 March and, being held on a former railway line, is the perfect event to ‘train’ for. A beautiful course coupled with views of the Derbyshire Dales make it a ‘must do’ for the runner and walker.  

A bronze award winner from SBR Events, the Ashbourne Seesaw is a favourite with many due to the location - the Tissington Trail – an area popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. This traffic-free trail follows the route of the disused Ashbourne to Buxton railway line and there is plenty to see as you complete a 5K, 10K, 10 Mile or a Half Marathon course. Canicross entrants and Nordic Walkers will equally enjoy the sights.

Canicross (5K and 10K) sets off first followed by the 10 Mile and Half Marathon then 5K and 10K. Note: the 5K is run or walk so a good choice for the PB-chaser and ideal for families wanting a pleasant ramble. 

These start and finish at Ashbourne Leisure Centre car park along a course that has a gradual incline on the way out but a nice downhill on the way back. The surface is firm, consisting of crushed limestone which is easy to run/walk on and there are water stations en route. The trail is often used by the general public who along with the marshals will give you a cheer or several.

Then recover with a free post-race massage and relax over food and drinks in the Race Village. 

There are trophies for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female in the 5K, 10K, 10 Mile and Half Marathon; a special race medal for all finishers and certificates for everyone including the canine competitors.   

More information about the Ashbourne Seesaw and how to enter can be found at the SBR Events website.
