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.
