This fantastic 10K loop allows runners to experience some of the Peak District’s finest views whilst up on the ‘great ridge’.
Starting the run from the centre of Castleton, the run takes us up the high street and straight up past the Castelton war memorial. The trail begins as we then hit the meaty ascent up through the quite impressive and medieval Cave Dale trail right next to Peveril castle. This imposing and iconic 11th century castle overlooks the heart of Derbyshire which is nestled next to some of the Peak Caverns. This part of the limestone trail is pretty gnarly at times and often turns to streams when the weather has been inclement. A careful and steady start to the trail is advised here..
Some 200m of climbing eventually turns grassy and then back to easy trails as the views start to open up. At this stage and 3/4km in we spot the mighty Mam Tor and at 517m she is the ‘mother of the hills’ and our route takes us up to the summit where we will have a great chance to take in the fantastic views.
We then descend down the ‘Great ridge’ and will almost likely meander between hikers on route down from this popular spot. At Hollins cross we then make our way down what will probably be a muddy trail which will lead us all the way back down to Castleton where an inevitable coffee and cake can be consumed in a nearby cafe.

Trail running for me means seeking beauty in nature, having freedom to explore new places & being resilient mentally & physically. What I find special about the Trail Pursuit community is that everyone is so unique, from different places & walks of life yet we share an obsession for the outdoors which breaks barriers for new friendships.
As someone who primarily road runs in the city, getting out on the trail is my escape. It's more than just fresh air, it takes me to a healthy mental place.
Trail running has always been a form of complete escapism for me; it's exhilarating and challenging in equal measure but leaves you feeling accomplished and like you can tackle anything life throws your way!
Running for me is a daily reprieve from the pressures of daily life. I moved from the road into trail running about two years ago. Hitting the trails gives me a chance to reset my mind and reconnect with body whilst surrounded in beauty and nature.
Losing myself amongst nature on the trails has proven to be a lifeline, by lifting my spirits and improving my mental health. This sense of purpose is so important for me since I've had to reclaim the routes for my own... on wheels.
Trail running makes me a happier person, connects me with a nature, which I really enjoy. I feel wild and free when I'm on my trails 🙃
To me, trail running removes the playing field all together, it removes the boundaries that come from road running and allow you to feel a full sense of adventure and intimacy with the natural world. Going off the beaten path is where I feel alive, free and at my most inspired.
Saturday 15th January from 09:30am.
We welcome beginner & experienced trail runners alike. We'll stop for frequent water breaks & photos! Come & enjoy the adventure :)
