Back for its 5th year!! The Ladybower Trail Marathon is set in the idyllic beauty spot of the Peak District national park, the course is surrounded by the elevated fells set within the Derwent Valley. Described by fellow runners as one of the most scenic trail marathons in the Peak District this one is not to be missed.


Super fast course with very runnable hard packed trails, but don't get too comfortable. We have thrown in a couple of climbs which take you high up onto the Derwent edges, which is followed by some great technical descending!!!!



Race Registration will take place from 8.00am. The registration tent is located down by the dam wall, which can seen from the information centre located by the main car park - Look out for the signs, it will be well marked.


Race start time

Race will start at 9:30am. Please ensure all race numbers are visible to the marshals, as you will need to check in at each feed station on route. The course will be fully marked and marshalled so no need for navigation and there is feed stations every 5 miles. There is no cut off times on this event, as I would rather people to just enjoy the run without any pressure of cut offs.



Toilet amenities will be open from 7am and are located in the main visitors car park. Hot and cold snacks including tea and coffee are available from the kiosk also located in the main visitors car park.



Please ensure you leave plenty of time before the race starts to park, it can fill up pretty quickly as especially if the weather is good. We recommend using the lay bys on the way down to the main visitors car park as they are free. However, there is a pay and display car park in the main visitors centre also.


Feed Stations

The course has water and feed stations at mile 5, mile 10, mile 15 and mile 20. We would highly recommend also carrying some fluids with you, especially if the weather report shows a hot and humid day. Marshall's will be placed around the course should you require any assistance. Edale Mountain Rescue Team will also be on hand, should we require them for any medical emergencies.


We are now a cupless organisation on our feed stations. Please bring your own personal cup if required.


Mobile Reception

In the Derwent Valley, mobile phone signal is virtually non existent. Therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT to check in at every feed station on route - failure to do so will result in a instant disqualification.


So whether you’re new to running or an experienced athlete this marathon is definitely one for the calendar.


I think this covers everything however, should you have any further questions about the race or any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by either email or phone.
