Calling all Half marathon + runners !!
Next Sunday we will be offering up a choice of routes, setting off early – 7am from Belper, although read on and there are later options…
Option 1 will be leave Belper at a steady pace via Alport Heights, Wirskworth, Middleton by Wirksworth, Bonsall then Matlock Bath for a lift back to Belper, approx 15 miles, 2-3hours.
Option 2 will be all of the above plus various other loops and options finishing in Belper after 5-6 hours, 29 miles. Unofficially called the Ultra Tour de Matlock Bath (UTMB), it’s a classic route and proper hard.
Option 3 : There could be a shorter middle option meeting around Bonsall / Cromford / Matlock Bath and doig some of the middle section of the route, 10-15 miles.
Option 4 : Option 1 to Matlock Bath then down the Cromford Canal to Ambergate and back, about 22 mile.
There’s a summary of the overall route below, but the idea is to get as many people out to try a 15 mile option over lots of ground you’ve not covered before. Pace will not be "fast" but it won’t be "slow".
