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. Please visit to enter.

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

The fifth Derby 10 Mile race is due to take place on 15th November 2020 at 10am. The race will start and finish at the iconic Derby Arena. Taking in the scenic grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park, the route is flat and fast, providing the potential for a personal best.
