Who's up for this one?
Suggest car sharing for this one or could be a good trip up in the peak district after with other halves and family!
Three-lap course of approximately 4.6 miles is likely to be a wet one (so minimum of 12mm spikes recommended).
The route involves a multi-crossing of Combs Road between the upper and lower showground sites, wet sections close to the River Wye and long grass.
The course is immediately adjacent to the Bakewell Agricultural Centre. where there is a large pay-and-display council car park for parking this weekend.
Please be aware that the race falls on the same day as the Bakewell Christmas Market so this, along with Chatsworth House being open for Christmas visitors, means the A6 from Matlock could potentially be busy.
Public toilets will be open at the Agricultural Centre and in the town centre nearby from 10.00am.
The Matlock AC Chairman has also negotiated a special deal with the Farmers Feast Cafe in the Agricultural Centre of discounted hot drinks, bacon cobs and a three meat Sunday carvery should any runners and supporters intend to stick around after the race. Runners will need to show a club vest to claim the discount.
