The Monsal Trail Half Marathon
The inaugural Monsal Trail Half Marathon followed the stunning, traffic-free Monsal Trail – one of the most iconic of Peak District trails – with a flat-ish, good surface throughout. The Monsal Trail is a former Midland railway line and the route takes runners through four railway tunnels plus across the spectacular Monsal Viaduct.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside this half marathon is ideal for Spring marathon training. Organised by the team that manages the Tissington Trail Half Marathon – which regularly features in the Runners World top 10 UK trail races. Steve Large was the only Harrier in attendance and finished 10th in a time of 1:23:02.
