Ashbourne Leisure Centre: Clifton Road, Ashbourne, United Kingdom
Brand new for 2017 is the latest addition to our 10k/10mile series; Ashbourne 10.
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 and 5mile & 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 total climb for the 10mile is just under 400ft (123m).
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.
The ground is firm & even in most places - The Tissington Trail is open to the public & there may be walkers & cyclists using the trail.
The usual SBR Events fun is included and the following will be present at the event:
Full details are on the website. Race start is 10:30am with registration opening at 09:00am. The course is an out and back along Tissington Trail starting and finishing at Ashbourne Leisure Centre.
Car parking - there will be NO car parking available at Ashnourne Leisure Centre as the finish line & race village are held in the car park. Please use free parking at Halfords just 10 minutes walk away at Spire House Waterside Business Park, Ashbourne, DE6 1DU. Please car share to save our environment.
ID is not required, but you must sign the waiver. We do recommend you bring some layers as the weather can be temperamental in early March. As for shoes, the trail is made of compacted stone so you should be good to run in road shoes.
