Derbyshire Constabulary are delighted to be hosting the 2021 PSUK 10 Mile Road Race on Thursday 9th September 2021 at the beautiful Carsington Water, Ashbourne, Derbyshire.
Race registration will be open from 10:30am at Millfields Car Park Race HQ. Both the ladies’ and the men’s races will begin at 1pm. The event will be chip timed (www.chiptiming.co.uk).
The route is largely traffic-free, apart from for a short (2km) section of road at the start. The main path around the reservoir is all hard surface, suitable for cyclists, pedestrians and buggies.
The route can be described as ‘undulating’. We will not have exclusive access to the path on race day so please give due consideration to other site users.
Runners will leave Millfields Car Park via the main gates, turning left onto the road for 1km. After 1km runners will turn left onto Gibfield Lane and then fork left onto Broom Lane. At the top of Broom Lane runners will turn left onto Hays Lane and descend down to the main path around the reservoir. Runners will then embark on a full, single, clockwise lap of the reservoir, finishing at Millfields Car Park.
The route will be well-marked with signage and police tape and marshalled, although it is virtually impossible to get lost or take a wrong turn as long as you keep the water to your right. There will also be an outrider cycling ahead of the lead runners and two sweep riders behind the last runners.
There will be one water station on the course at halfway (Sheepwash Car Park) and at least one race photographer.
The evening meal and awards presentation will take place in at Pride Park Stadium, home of Derby County Football Club.
Online entry is available at Entryhub – Online Entries. There are two entry options available; race only (£14 per entrant) or race and meal (£55 per entrant). Any dietary requirements can be specified at the point of entry or by emailing the organisers.
For more information on anything race or travel-related please get in touch with either Shaun Bott or Claire Croll who will do their very best to help.
