Probably as hilly as Buxton based on the times I`ve run for both events but a much better run, I hate the drag from Glutton Bridge in the Buxton event. There`s a longish uphill stretch upto the top of Thorpe before the worst hill at halfway, a steepish climb from Illam upto the top of Bloore hill, its pretty fast all the way back home from there. The finish is better than Buxton, no loops through a housing estate to get the distance in, just straight through the town centre into the park.

First time running this and really enjoyed it, deserves more runners. Plenty of drink stations, every 2/3 miles, great countryside, good support, where people were there. Would improve the finnish managed to get confused/'lost' in the last 500yrds on enterying the park.
A small event which did mean running on my own from 7 miles to 10 miles. The course is not as bad as Buxton, yes there is a chellange at mile 7, parts of which I walked for small sections but other hills were runnable.
Final promotion for this was the barbq. real sausage 'hot dogs' for 1gbp at the finnish, thanks to the lions for putting this on

I second all that. Really enjoyed it yesterday. Great organisation, cheerful marshals and water station helpers and the brownies at the end were most helpful. The shoppers on the last mile were a bit miserable but thats not the ROs fault The woman who finished in front of me didn't do the field lap at the end but I was too happy to finish to care! Loved it and will be back next year. Thank you to all involved

First time running this too! Enjoyed the run and would recommend but it is hilly. Great support around the course and the water stations were brilliant.

This is definitely the most scenic half marathon I've done.
