The 'Back to Beeley Bash' Guided Run Series
 

incorporating

18th to 20th August 2017

1/7
A full weekend of trail running and other activities  
 

Come and join us for a weekend of spectacular trail running in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park.  Staying on the edge of the famous Chatsworth Estate, you’ll be able to take part in a series of stunning guided trail runs and enjoy a host of other activities in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.   

Includes:
  • A series of three runs taking in some of the best countryside in England (3.1+10+13.1=26.2miles)

  • A range of other activities throughout the weekend

  • Fully catered accommodation at the wonderful Dukes Barn in the historic village of Beeley

Run only options are also available for those that don't require accommodation. 

 
The Trail Run Series

Our trail runs covers a full marathon distance split into three stages of progressively longer distances over the weekend. As the distance is broken up over the weekend, you don’t need to be fit for the full marathon distance to complete them all. Plus there is the option to just choose the ones you want to do, or to take shorter routes.

 

You will experience a wide range of terrain over the course of the weekend, including open moorland, forest trails, country estates and impressive vistas of the Peak District. Plus you’ll glimpse some of Chatsworth’s hidden gems as you run along tracks within the estate that we have special permission to use.  

 

All three runs will start and finish at our base in the village of Beeley.

Run #1: To Hell and Back

Distance: 3.1 miles / 5 km. Elevation gain: 580ft / 175m.

A short sharp start to the weekend, taking you up through Hell Bank Plantation to the edge of Beeley Moor, before descending back to base. 

 

Run #2: Mind Your Manners Deer

Distance: 10 miles / 16 km. Elevation gain: 1100ft / 340m.

A delightful route which starts by winding its way past the herds of Deer that roam the meadows of the Chatsworth estate. You’ll climb gradually onto high pastures before descending through Manners Wood to the edge of Bakewell. The return journey will then take you past Haddon Hall and back through the Derwent valley.

Run #3: Tour de Chatsworth and Moor

Distance: 13.1 miles / 21.1 km. Elevation gain: 1500ft / 460m

The final leg takes you deep into the heart of the Chatsworth estate’s woodlands. After passing a number of hidden gems, you’ll emerge to dramatic views of the Peak District’s high points as you traverse the northern reaches of the estate. During the second half you’ll have fun negotiating some rocky stretches before climbing onto high moorland and starting the long descent to the final finish line of the weekend.
