I will attempt to run a Half Marathon PB in 2016 as part of the challenges.

This will be the Tisssington trail Half Marathon on the 9th October 2016.

I will be joined on the day by Michael Underhill.


The Tissington Trail Half Marathon Sunday October 2016

09 Oct 16

Start Location: The Tissington Trail, Parsley Hay, Ashbourne, SK17 ODG

Race Headquarters: Ashbourne Leisure Centre, Ashbourne DE6 1AA

Date: Sunday 9th October 2016

Time: 10.00 am

The race returns for a fifth year in 2016 after establishing itself as a real favourite half marathon for those who have taken part. The 2015 race sold out in record time and for 2016 we have, once again, secured two dates for the race. Prices for 2016 include bus transport to the start at Parsley Hay.

The race regularly features in the list of top 10 UK trail races.

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 will be 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!

This event is now Sold Out.
