Trail, Trains and Tunnels

Saturday 24 August 2024
Start time : 10:00

Come along and join us in Penistone for a 6 hour challenge along the Trans Pennine Trail but something slightly different to our usual route. 

Each loop will be 7 miles and it will take you along both the Trans Pennine Trail trail and the Don Valley trail, over Rumtickle Viaduct and through Thurgoland Tunnel.  The tunnel is 924ft long and was opened in 1845.  As well as having an aid station at the start/finish, we will also have one at the 3.5 mile turnaround mark before runners head back through the tunnel again.

You can run as few or as many laps as you wish within the 6 hour limit.  2 laps is a heavy half (14 miles) and 4 laps for 28 miles. All runners, no matter how many laps they have run will receive a bespoke medal and a goody bag.

Race HQ is Penistone Community Centre, Church St, Penistone, Sheffield S36 6AR. With plenty of parking, toilets and an indoor area for baggage that can be accessed at any point.

Complimentary hot drinks and cake will be available inside the hall during and after the event.

So, you can run one lap, finish, eat cake and go home or you could see how many laps you can do until the 6 hours is up. This a fabulous event for running with friends and for making new friends.

You must have started your final lap before 6hrs is up (even if your finish time will be after 6 hours).            

Like our other events, it is cupless. Please bring your own bottle or cup and we will happily fill and refill this for you with squash, water or coke on the day.

Registration and bib collection will be on the morning of the race.

Unfortunately, due to permit restrictions runners will not be allowed to run with dogs.

Affiliated £26.00

Unattached £28.00
