Starting from the beautiful village of Langsett, this new and exciting race will twist and wind you through some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park.


From there you will hit a single track that changes in elevation several times, from the top of this climb you will be greeted to a spectacular technical decent which will land you right into the heart of the Derwent valley.


With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.


This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well earned cuppa!!!!
