Rivelin Running Events

Latest Covid-19 update: 01/03/2021

All being well, we can return to organised events in the near future! They will obviously look different to pre-Covid, and we ask that you respect that and follow all government guidance, as we are doing.

The postponed first Bradfield Bash has been given the green light for 18th April at 9am. Please note this is an earlier start time than previously advertised to avoid the majority of the crowds in Bradfield. All entrants will receive an email with details of the staggered start set up we will be implementing. To enter the race click here.

Welcome to Rivelin Running Events

We offer a wide range of races to suit all tastes – from five flat miles to 60 hilly ones, and everything in between! Whether you want a series of shorter races to keep you motivated through the year, or are thinking about dipping your toe into the ultra marathon pond for the first (or 50th) time, then we think you’ll find something that fits the bill.


Upcoming Events

2021 Races….

Events for 2021 are set to include the return of Dig Deep and the Bradfield Bash, the Ladybower 50 series, as well as a couple of things we didn’t get to do in 2020! For details and to enter check out the links below:

The Canal Canter
The Canal Canter – five miles of flat racing from Victoria Quays in Sheffield city centre.

Dig Deep

Four races over two days, from 10km through to a challenging 60 miles. Pick your distance and enjoy the fabulous views the Peak District has to offer. Plus running talks, food, beer, and quite possibly a Saturday night party!





Ecclesall Endurance

Running through the night on a 4km woodland loop – how far can you go? Put yourself to the test in our dusk til dawn trail challenge. A perfect step into the world of ultra running, with the safety net of knowing you are never more than a couple of km from support!





Ladybower 50 Race Series

A well loved event in Peak District ultra running, you can choose from 20, 35 or 50 miles of running around the Upper Derwent Valley. Friendly, fun, and pretty hard to get lost (water – left, land – right) – what’s not to love?
