This event has been rescheduled for 5th September 2021
This hugely popular annual charity event is promoted annually on Easter Monday by the Matlock Athletic Club in conjunction with Peak Rail. It is a race that initially started as a club members only 5k but has now developed into a challenging 7 mile test of speed and stamina in which runners are challenged to beat the steam hauled heritage rail service from Rowsley South Station to Matlock Platform 2 station and back. It attracts runners of all abilities from across the country and the event sells out within 24 hours of being open for registrations.
A special train departs at 9.30 a.m. and then we run our normal timetable operating for the remainder of the day.
