Introduction

The CALKE OUTDOOR WEEKENDER (COW) is a brand-new, weekend long event inspired by the great outdoors, organised by Peak Running in partnership with the National Trust at Calke and the National Forest. Timed to coincide with the start of the annual National Forest Walking Festival, the event will welcome people of all abilities to get active and reconnect with nature in the Calke estate and surrounding countryside of the National Forest. 
On each of the three days there will be a main feature event based at the COW arena on the meadow next to Calke Abbey itself. Simultaneous to these will be a host of other activities to get involved in, with something for all the family. Full details of the entire programme will be available soon.
If you want to make a weekend of it, camping is available at the nearby Whistlewood Common. For details and to book your pitch click HERE.
The FRACTURED MARATHON - Friday 15th May, 19:00 to midnight  
The main feature on the Friday evening will be the Fractured Marathon, an exciting and unique running event for solo runners or teams that was a smash hit with runners when it was first held in 2019. The innovative format creates an electric atmosphere and is as much a Friday night running party as a race! There will be 10 timed laps around a scenic 2.6-mile course, which will start every half hour on the half hour.

Teams, or solo runners, can take part in as many or as few of the 10 laps as they like. For runners, solo and team, to be eligible to run the next lap they must be back before it starts. Otherwise they will have to wait for the next start time to re-join the game. So, to remain in with chance of completing a full marathon, each loop must be completed within half an hour.
Full details can be found HERE.
The COW's BIG CHALLENGE - Saturday 16th May, 08:00 to 18:00
The COW’s Big Challenge provides participants the opportunity to run, jog, walk or skip their chosen distance around the wonderful South Derbyshire countryside within the National Forest.
The options to choose from are:
Ultra: 40 Miles
Marathon: 26 Miles
Half Marathon: 13 Miles
Calf 6 Miles
Calf 3 Miles
 

There will be a number of different routes exploring different parts of the Calke estate and the surrounding countryside. Each route will start and finish in the main COW arena on the meadow next to the Abbey, with the number of different routes you need to complete depending on the distance of the challenge you choose; from 6 routes for the 40-mile ultra to just one for the ‘Calf 3’.

Before, after or even in-between completing routes, there will be plenty of other things to get involved in back at Calke. These include yoga, natural movement workshops, inspirational talks, or just relaxing with some great food.

Full details of the COW's Big Challenge can be found on it's page HERE

The CALKE EXPLORER - Sunday 17th May, 09:00 to 12:30  
The Calke Explorer is the last of the three main COW events.  It is an orienteering type trail event for all abilities. Participants will navigation their way around the spectacular Calke estate to find a series of checkpoints at their own pace, using a map they will be given at the start line.
Start times will be staggered so you can't just follow the person(s) in front, but you can opt to team up with friends, club-mates of family members.
Full details of the Calke Explorer can be found on it's page HERE

  • Background
    2024 will be the fifth edition of our Peak District Ultras. Creating an iconic ultramarathon for the Peak District is something that Peak Running founders, Andy Brooks (Brooksie) and Chris Hopkinson, had been thinking about for many years before. As a fell and trail runner since the mid 90's, Brooksie has always had a penchant for going long. So, while there have been some great races in the Peaks over the years, satisfying that desire has traditionally meant travelling a long way from his Derbyshire home. To take on his first 100-miler, he had to go all the way to the mountains of Virgina, because there was yet to be one in the UK in those days! Chris' passion for mountain marathons in remote locations, and the challenge of planning routes through the terrain, is something that has seen him travel to other parts of the UK, and overseas (including Iceland and Japan) over the years, to enjoy his fix too. The increase in popularity of mountain and ultra-running in the UK in more recent times has led to some fantastic events emerging in the other national parks. Something that the guys have revelled in. But their own backyard, the Peak District, was still crying out for something special in their view. Our aim, therefore, with The Peak District Ultras is to provide an event that's not only a fantastic experience for those taking part, but something that is also a special day for the communities within our favourite playground, the 'original' national park. In our view, the Peak District is the best place on the planet to go for a run. Click HERE to to understand why.
  • Race Ethos
    Our ethos for the event is aligned with our ethos for Peak Running as a whole. We want it to be an event that is capable of challenging even the most experienced ultra-runners, while also inspiring those within the wider running community to push their boundaries and achieve things they may not have thought possible themselves. So, in addition to the race itself, there is bags of guidance and support available to help you achieve your ambitions and complete the event safely. We want there to be some tough competition at the front of the fields in each distance. But we also recognise that, for the majority, simply finishing is winning for them. So even if you're not a fast runner, or you'd prefer to hike, it's designed to accommodate you. From a broader perspective, we want to make it an event that has a positive impact on the Peak District, its communities and the local environment. An event that residents, local businesses, and those that look after the delicate landscapes within the park, support and look foward to. Our commitments to this fundamental aim for the event include: Donating a proportion of the profits to the Peak District National Park Foundation charity to help them protect this wonderful park, for everyone, forever. Building strong relationships with the park authorities and land managers, their rangers and other stakeholders. Organising conservation days for runners to help carry out important conservation and restoration work on the trails within the park. Using the event as a vehicle to help promote and educate people on the work and behaviours necessary to maintain the beauty of the park for future generations. Using community facilities for event HQ and checkpoints wherever possible. Using local independant buinesses for supplies, such as race mementos, t-shirts etc. Ensuring there will be no trace of the event by the time it is wrapped up on the Sunday.
