The course

With 80 acres of parkland Darley Park is a picturesque park featuring many different gardens and wildlife areas, perfect for a scenic run. The 5k is a single lap course which begins and finishes at the Darley Grove end of the park alongside the river Derwent. The 10k is a double lap so look out for signage on the day.

The course is a mixture of terrains and suitable for women of all abilities to walk, jog or run.

Wheelchair users will need assistance. In wet conditions, it will become very difficult without assistance.

Meeting point

The start and the finish are by the River Derwent at the Darley Grove end of the park.

On the day

Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the many stalls we’ll have, including face painting, merchandise, and lots of lovely food.

There will be no parking available at the venue, please use City Centre public car parks. Please consider local residents when parking. Disabled Parking will be available by Darley Grove.
