Just how hilly is it?

The first mile and a half is a steady climb with a quite steep bit followed by a flattish mile. Then a steep downhill and a short steep climb to around mile 3. Then a downhill section to around 4. And to finish there are 2 short climbs in the last mile. But the best bit is that the start and finish runs through the streets of Buxton where there will be loads of spectators. If you decicde to run be careful not to go off too fast and I hope you have a great race.
Good Luck

anyone know what the pace is like in this race?
Would i be left behind finishing in around 40 minutes?

Any views appreciated.

I think 40 minutes is a very good time for the race. I wish I could do it in that right now. People of all abilities will be there. Give it a try i'm sure you will enjoy.

I've got some previous years' results (2002 and 2003) on my site so you can have a look at the times there, if that helps.

Pete Lambert-My best 5mile time is 41 mins in a very flat race so I'll be behind you.
Thanks for the info on the race John.
Does anyone know if there are still places left if I want to enter on the day?

There will be places available on the day for sure.

Thanks John, hope to see you there.

I hope there will be lots of other people running MUCH slower than 40, like 60 plus.....otherwise I'll have no-one to chat to at the back!! And that's one of the best bits for me - the socialising
