Dig Deep Trail 10k

What’s new for Dig Deep 2021?

  • The start and finish location! Due to various factors including a backlog of weddings at Whirlow Farm, we have chosen to move the start/finish point just up the road to Clarks Farm on Hangram Lane. See below for venue details and directions.
  • Little tweaks to the route – in part due to the change in venue, and partly due to agreements with landowners, there are some minor changes to the route. If you have previous years routes on your watch then please make sure they are replaced with the most current GPX file. Updated route files and descriptions can be downloaded below.
  • The start. Last year, due to covid restrictions, we set runners off singly or in household pairs. This year we are going to set off groups as big as we can safely do so. At the moment this will be in groups of five every minute, although if we can safely do more by August then we will consider it. Mass starts will probably still be out though. More details will be sent out to entrants as we get closer to the time.

What’s staying the same?

  • The great sense of fun (type 2) and achievement you get from finishing!
  • The welcoming, supportive and happy atmosphere we strive to achieve, even when we’ve been awake for 30 hours :D
  • The price! We feel we offer a great value event and want to keep it as accessible as possible.
  • Camping, toilets and shelter available at the start/finish venue.
  • All the main hills that we know you just love on route!
  • The DD60 is still worth 4 UTMB points, so a perfect way to see the sights and get a step closer to Chamonix!

If you have any questions about any of the changes then please get in touch.

Sunday, 10am start.
After listening to demand, the Dig Deep Trail 10k is back!
This is a fantastic race to enter whether it’s your first or your 100th 10k.

This 10 kilometre (6.2 mile) route takes in some beautiful scenery on the edge of the Peak District, following trails out along from Clarks Farm on Hangram Lane, through the Porter and Limb valleys before finishing back at the farm.

 

We work closely with the Peak District National Park Authority and local land owners to ensure the event is sustainable and avoids sensitive areas. Please ensure you help us to do this by sticking to the event route and making sure you take all litter away with you.
