Carsington 7+ is a 7.76 mile (12.5km) race around the stunning Carsington Reservoir.

Runners complete a full clockwise circuit of the reservoir, taking in spectacular views across the water and the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Mainly on cycle track, the course is flat in places but includes some moderate to steep inclines.We welcome everyone over 17 who wants to run whatever their ability or experience. Entries will open early in 2019. Please visit to enter.

We are proud to support Derby & District RSPCA as the official headline charity.

We are delighted that Western Power Distribution will be the headline sponsor for the event for a 4th year, with support from Derby City Council. The iconic Derby Arena will be the new host venue for this year’s race, providing a brilliant new start and finish as well as a brand new Race Village. The amended route will still take in the beautiful grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park and the course remains flat and fast, providing the potential for a personal best.
