We get lots of enquiries about the terrain and suggested footwear for this race.
The majority of the course is Tarmac. Miles 5 - 9 look similar to the picture on the left. It's beautiful but please be aware the route is slightly looser under foot. The track is used year round, it has been in place for 40+ years. It's well trodden and worn in. We cannot promise there won't be damp sections, especially in the wooded areas. We run here year round in road shoes but some people choose a more winter based trail shoe. It's not an off road or trail shoe event but please note the difference in terrain. Miles 0-5 + 9-13.1 are all on tarmac footpaths.
We also have a Spring Half Marathon Walk.
The chance to walk the route the day before. A half marathon at a slightly gentler pace

Whitwell car park- Free to runners (Approximately 10 minutes from the start line)
Barnsdale - no parking in Barnsdale this year
Whitwell parking is free to competitors, but involves a short walk through the Bluebell wood to get to the start line. (it’s actually a very lovely walk). The car park is located just over 1km from the start line.
We encourage runners to make their way to Whitwell nice and early where the walk to the start line will be well signposted.
Exiting the site after the race will be easier from Whitwell.
