Race Dates: Saturday 3rd October & Sunday 4th October 2015
The 2015 race sold out in record time. 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 half marathon and, because the route is slightly downhill all the way, you’ve got gravity on your side virtually the whole way down the course!
This is a rare opportunity to run a half marathon in Derbyshire without hills! The race is a point to point race from Parsley Hay to Ashbourne and coach transport takes you from the Race HQ in Ashbourne to Parsley. You then run back to the finish!
Due to the race selling out so quickly, the organisers arranged a second date, on the Saturday. Each day has a capacity of around 350 runners.
The race was won by Darren King of Clowne Road Runners in 1.15.31. The first woman was Louise Lowe also of Clowne Road Runners in 1.28.15
