Course information

The course is set within 200 acres of parkland, within Markeaton Park. A picturesque venue featuring many different gardens and wildlife areas - one of the most popular parks in the East Midlands. The course is a mixture of terrains and suitable for women of all abilities to walk, jog or run.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

The meeting point is in the open area opposite the Football Golf area.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll  be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

There will be car parking at Markeaton Park Craft Village car park and The Mundy Play Centre car park spaces are limited and normal charges apply. Car parking is also available at Derby University, please follow event signs. Disabled parking is available at all parking locations.

The nearest station is Derby Train Station. It is then a 25 minute walk to the event, so we recommend taxi sharing with friends from the station. There are also many bus routes passing Markeaton Park.

Parking

The course uses a mixture of grass field and main park paths. The grassed areas could be effected by poor weather and adjustments will be made where ever possible. There is a hill section for around 100m and a gravel path for around 80m in distance just after the 2K point that may require assistance.

We suggest this course is suitable to wheelchair users with assistance.
