Returning with a bang for 2020! A brand new name from its previous debuts (Ashbourne10) and a new distance - 13.1 miles (half marathon!)
Starting and finishing in Ashbourne Lesiure Centre car park, the race is an out-and-back route along the Tissington Trail. Ashbourne is known as the gateway to The Peak District. This is a beautiful route with amazing views from the former train line across the Derbyshire Dales. Enjoy the stunning scenery & abundance of wildlife.
Turn points are set up along the route at 2.5k, 5k, 5mile, 6.5 miles & waterstations will be along the route.
The route isn't flat as your outward section is a very gradual incline, but for every uphill there is a downhill! The 2nd half of your race is all set on a gradual decline which should feel fantastic once the legs have warmed up & you can get those feet flying!
The 5k run / walk is for all levels. This event can be a gentle stroll with the family or a race to get your 5km PB.
