Runners prepare to tackle the Wirksworth Undulator

Excitement is building in the running community ahead of a new fell race this weekend, the Wirksworth Undulator.

Organised by Wirksworth Running Club, it takes place on Saturday, October 15, and the challenging 8.4 mile route starts from Stoney Wood, Wirksworth, tracing an undulating course of over 1,250 feet of ascent and descent.

Not for the faint-hearted, the race promises to further reinforce Wirksworth’s reputation as an excellent centre for running and provides a real taste of the character of the area.

Entry is on the day, with the race starting at 10.30am.
