Coronavirus update 27/09/2020   
The   2020 White Peak Marathon  10k and Half Marathon have now all regretably been postponed to 15th May 2021 due to the deteriorating Covid-19 situation. All entrants for the rescheduled half marathon and 10k races we had hoped to stage on 7th November will be contacted by either Fabian4 (half marathon) or Bookitzone (10k) with further details.

Please Note - Junior group waiting list is currently full

Our Junior training sessions are currently full to capacity and since our waiting list has become so long we have unfortunately had to suspend till further notice. If you already have a child on the waiting list we will get in touch as soon as a place becomes available, however this is on a one in, one out basis, so please bear with us.
