Front Runner Trail Run - Fox House (Change of location)

11th August 2015

Front Runner Trail Run - Fox House (No longer at Pilsley)


We've had to change the location of this weeks Trail Run. Please now meet at the Fox House Pub. The route will be a similar length and difficulty.



Tuesday 11th August, meeting at 6.30 for a 6.45 depart. Please park sensibly in Pilsley and we'll meet outside the Devonshire Arms Pub.

The route.

If we're correct the Pilsley Fell Race hasn't been run since 2009. The course is 6 miles with around 660ft of ascent. It takes in some of the best parts of the Chatsworth Estate. Heading from Pilsley into Edensor along to the Derwent and up past Chatsworth House. Although, there aren't any major climbs on the route it is undulating and contours along a number of grass slopes. As the route goes over private land we're hoping to have a map up of the route we'll be taking by next week.

If you're unsure as to how you'll find the terrain please feel free to call or email Steve (01142669591 or

How long.

The run is around 5.5 miles and we're aiming to run for around 1h 15m.

What to wear and bring.

Please bring appropriate clothing. If the forecast is bad then come prepared (Hats / gloves / jackets / spare clothes / head torch) and if the weather is blisteringly hot... also come prepared (Sun hat / sun cream / water)

Post run.

If we're recceing a new route it only seem right to recce the local too... so a drink in the Devonshire Arms seems appropriate.
