The Cordwell Colossus – a summer trail run in North Derbyshire just on the edge of the Peak District. It is a lovely loop of challenging goodness on the beautiful trails, paths and woodlands of the Cordwell Valley with a little jink over into the neighbouring Linacre Valley for good measure.
The full loop is just over 20 miles with 840m ascent. The 40 mile option is the same loop repeated. Both events are open to runners and fast walkers who can make the 12 hour cut off time. Note: for the 40 mile option you must have started the second loop within 6 hours.
Starting at Holmesfield Village Hall at 9.00am, you head north via woodland track before curving round in an anticlockwise direction over hilly farmland, woodland and rural trails. The views from the high ground are terrific and the route conditions range from highly runnable trails and lanes to more involving single track and trods. The route will be marked on the less obvious sections and a downloadable map, GPX files and route notes will be available. Basic navigation skills will be desirable.
There will be 2 stocked checkpoints out on the route with additional refreshments available at the village hall for finishers.
From 8am at Holmesfield Village Hall, Holmesfield, Dronfield S18 7WZ.
Car parking is free of charge to participants in the spacious village hall car park.
If you are travelling from afar please get in touch for accommodation advice.
Both races start at 9.00
Every finisher receives a bespoke medal and a belly full of refreshments.
