Covid-19 Safety Measures 

We are currently planning the additional measures required. Your safety & enjoyment of the day is our priority. This guidance will be updated regularly & emailed to all participants before race day.

The award winning - Ashbourne SeeSaw is a 5k, 10k, 10mile or half marathon out-and-back route along the Tissington Trail starting & finishing in the Ashbourne Leisure Centre car park. This is a beautiful route with amazing views from the former train line across the Derbyshire Dales. Enjoy the stunning viwes and abundence of wildlife. 

The 5k run / walk is for all levels. This event can be a gentle stroll with the family or a race to get your 5km PB. 

There will be waves of athletes to avoid congestion on the trail. These times may be subject to change.

  • 5k & 10k Canicross - 8.30 (to be off course approx 9.30am)
  • 10mile & half marathon - 09:45
  • 5k &10k - 10:00  

Turn points are set up along the route at 2.5k, 5k, 5mile & 6.55 miles. Waterstations will be along the route. The route isn't flat as your outward section is a very gradual incline, but for every uphill there is a downhill!  

The ground has a hard surface. It is firm & even in most places - The Tissington Trail is open to the public & there may be walkers & cyclists & horse riders using the trail.

COVID- 19 additonal safety measures will be reviewed in January 2021.

Car parking  - there will be NO car parking available at Ashbourne Leisure Centre as the finish line & race village are held in the car park. Please use a public car park in Ashbourne. There are limited free parking spaces (max 4 hours) at Halfords just a few minutes walk away at Waterside Retail Park, Ashbourne, DE6 1DG. Please car share to save our environment.

We welcome Canicross Runners on 5k &10k - water stations will be provided to dogs regularly out on course & at Race Village. Your dog will need to wear a running harness & be used to running with you. Please clean up after your dog & keep on a lead at all times. Please book on in the correct distance (5k/10k) & use the Canicross category. Seperate start time at 08:30am & run before everyone else ensuring there aren’t any dogs running on the course at the same time as other athletes. The trail is not wide enough to accommodate 2-way runners with Canicross runners at the same time.
