On the outskirts of the City of Sheffield and the Peak District lies Whirlow Hall Farm. Home to the Dig Deep Trail weekend.
With great facilities, over night camping and on site parking, plus a great cafe, Whirlow has it all.
So what better place to base yourself for a weekend of running some of the most iconic trails in the Peak District. Four great races from a 10km trail race through to the challenge of the Peak District’s toughest ultra at 60 miles and over 10,500 feet of climbing.

Race HQ will be located in the barn at the top of the lane, on the left.
Food and coffee will be available to buy from Friday afternoon.



*Important information: These are the dates we are hoping to run the events, however due to the ongoing pandemic some authorities are not accepting event applications currently, and we may not be allowed to hold them due to government restrictions at the time. Entries are open, and in the case of the dates changing runners have the options of racing the new dates, deferring their entry to a later race, transferring the entry fee to another of our events, or receiving a 75% refund.

10am – The Dig Deep Trail 10k is back by popular demand! A scenic climb up the Limb Valley followed by a loop of Lady Cannings Plantation, then back down the hill to Whirlow Hall Farm (with a little sting in the tail to finish). A fun and challenging 10k suitable for all abilities.
