Scenic rolling countryside with 605m climb with canal, trail, fields and some road. And the 50km route follows the start and finish sections cutting up the circular route through the centre of Derby.
The NoMad50 mile Ultra 50 mile participants have rolling waves of starts from 6am to 8am depending on estimated finish times. You will need to indicate an accurate expected time to complete the event. The time limit for the 50mile ultra is 13 hours, due to covid changes we will have faster runners starting first in groups of 6 every few minutes for a continued rolling start. This will be reviewed closer to the event date and adjustments maybe requested at the organisers discretion. You may request to run in groups of up to 6 only by email.
