Festival of Running 'Down in a Shot' 10K



Age 18 & over

  • 10 km trail running


This race joins the end of the White Peak marathon and Swift Half marathon. The half marathon and 10k follow the later stages of the marathon course from Friden and Harborough Rocks respectively. The route undulates along the tops of the dales for the first 8 miles or so, then descends in three stages, at 7, 8½ and 10½ miles down to High Peak Junction on the Cromford Canal, where it turns right, crosses the next bridge along the canal and turns left along the towpath to finish at Cromford Wharf. The total descent is about 800 feet, and with no steep uphill stretches, it provides the potential for fast times and personal bests. We like to think of this as our ‘down in a shot 10K.
