THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE

This run, from Dore in Sh­effield to Edale, show­cases some of the spec­tac­u­lar scenery of the Peak District. This pic­ture was taken while de­scend­ing the grassy trail from Win Hill down into Edale on a bright win­ter morn­ing.

LO­CAL FARE

The Ram­bler Inn, next to Edale Train Sta­tion, serves lo­cal ales and home­made pies. Per­fect for a postrun treat.

FAST FACT

The Peak District was the UK’S first na­tional park, des­ig­nated in 1951. It is not named after the hills, but after an An­glo Saxon tribe, the Pec­sae­tan, who set­tled in the area in the sixth cen­tury.

RACE IT

The Nine Edges En­durance Race, or­gan­ised by Edale Moun­tain Res­cue, is a 20-mile off-roader through the Peak District, with 900m of as­cent. It takes place in Septem­ber. edalemrt.co.uk
