What to Expect

The race starts at 7.30pm, heading from Pilsley to Hardwick Hall and back on country roads. There is a long exhilarating climb up to Hardwick, where you can have a drink, admire the views, and encourage the runners as you go down the hill. Milk the applause as you pass the drinkers at the Hardwick Inn. Another uphill section precedes a 1k downhill sprint to the finish. There will be an enthusiastic welcome from the Pilsley spectators. Exciting prizes include £100 for the first male and female runner to break the course records, first male and female Pilsley resident to finish, team prizes, and most importantly, every finisher gets a unique ‘I Beat the Hardwick Hill’ t-shirt.
