Race #3 - Sunday 5 November –  The Roaches and beyond.

Peak Raid Mini Mountain Marathon is a series of four 3-hour races. Think fell running requiring good route choice and navigation skills. The series uses a variety of terrain; from tough high moorland requiring accurate navigation to more runnable areas in the limestone dales with a good network of footpaths. 

Starting from Meerbrook Village Hall, Race #3 explores the moorland tops and valleys around Gradbach and The Roaches. Lud's Church offers an interesting route choice for the adventurous.

All events use SI Timing and have a score format so you select your own route and go as hard or as easy as you like!

Compete solo, or run as a pair (or walk or jog)!  The score event format enables route choice according to ability, terrain and weather conditions.

The secret for success is to collect as many points as possible within the time limit of three hours. Each area is different so your strategy may need to change each time. Your best three results count towards the overall league result.

Pairs can enter all categories. Age category is determined by your age on the 31/12/2023 and for pairs, the age category is based upon the age of the oldest runner.

On the day, registration opens from 7:30 am and competitors start in pre-selected five-minute time slots between 8 am and 10 am. Try to arrive at registration at least 30 minutes before your allocated start time.
