  • Date:2024-06-24
  • Time:19:00
  • Venue: Starting & finishing at Meadows School, DE56 4GT. Check in from 6pm, for 7pm start

This is a challenging steeple chase run which covers 5 miles (country miles, 8.5km) of cross-country terrain climbing up and over the Chevin. There is a change in the route this year to use more footpaths and avoid most of Hazelwood Road. Please note that roads are open to traffic and runners must obey all instructions from the race marshals.

The race starts from Duffield Meadows Primary School, Park Road, Duffield DE56 4GT. Note there is no parking at the school and walking or cycling to the start is encouraged. Please allow time to register, collect your number and warm up before the 7pm start.
The race will be started by the Carnival Mascot ‘Duffy’.

Not for the faint hearted, the event is open to anyone who feels up to a scenic 5 mile jaunt around Duffield’s hills and footpaths. Popular with people of all ages, from primary school to the over 70’s, fun and park runners through to athletics clubs and harriers.

Check in from 6pm at Duffield Meadows Primary School.
