Bamford Carnival is one of the long established and popular Peak District summer races, regularly attracting a field of over 200 runners of all abilities. Run from the Recreation Ground to the top Win Hill (our nearest peak) following a direct route, then loop back to the start, taking in a challenging twisty descent through gorse bushes and a variety of other paths.  After the initial dash across the field and funnelling down into Water Lane, the route has the advantage of no further bottlenecks.


28:07 - Stuart Bond, 2010

31:30 -Jo Smith, 1999, equaled by Phillipa Williams in 2019. 

The race is not just for elite athletes; many local runners gain a great sense of achievement by simply completing the route.
