Need to get some hill practice!
I'll be moving up to Chesterfield soon, probably within the next month. Looking forward to challenging myself on the hills. I run off road mostly atm and so looking forward to having the Peak District next door. Being able to run to an edge, do a bit of bouldering/soloing then running home fills me with glee. Any other running climbers/climbing runners out there?
Also just in time for my training for Snowdon, how fortuitous. (I'll be on the thread soon....)
I grew up in Ches. Moved away though years ago and do miss the hills, nice to go back and run there when visiting relatives. You'll be just in time for the Spire 10 mile race. Now THAT has a hill or two in it. Well mainly one very loooong one.
There are flat options too though - along the canal and so on.
Cheers McF. Hoping to buy a house somewhere around Ashgate so I have Linacre reservoir on the doorstep and the tracks to the Peak. Also means I can walk to the start of the Spire 10.
I was flicking at the Dark Peak FR site the other day. Got very scared when I realised how many of their races have got 300' of ascent per mile.....
Oh nice, my mum lives up that way . I run from hers, through Holmebrook valley park, up to Cutthorpe and then either Linacre or up to Barlow or round the roads up to the tops and down by Old Brampton. Loads of options.
Think North Derbyshire Running Club are meant to be pretty good.
There was a thread on here recently asking what is the toughest half marathon in the UK. Buxton and Eyam were both nominated, though I've not done either.
Cheers Lou, Cake.
Thanks for the link Cake. Might see if I can tempt McFlooze with one or two of those when we're in the area.
