The Spire 10 mile Sunday 1st July

The course then makes a long descent back to Holmebrook Valley Country Park. All the way runners are cheered along by enthusiastic members of North Derbyshire Running Club.

Hardwick 10k Thursday 19th July
This iconic race is now in its 34th year. It’s an undulating run up to the historic Hardwick Hall, where you turn around, enjoy the stunning scenery and plunge back down the hill to a rapturous welcome in Pilsley village. The race has sold out quickly since its recent rebirth. For entry details, open on 2nd April, please visit www.Hardwickrun.co.uk or Facebook. Each race provides its own memento and we aim to present at the Hardwick 10k the free Triple Hill Challenge memento to each runner who completes all 3 races.
