Dig Deep Races

9th May 2013

Dig Deep Races 13th -14th July A weekend of Great Races in the Peak District All of the races are predominantly trail races.

There are occasional road sections on the Ultra Tour of the Peak District and the Intro Ultra but apart from that its traffic free all the way! All of the races incorporate hills and, whilst we wouldn't describe any of them as being fell races, they all enter some hilly terrain. We believe the races show the best of what the Peak District has to offer and sometimes you have to work that little bit harder to see it! Whirlow 10k Trail Challenge 10k - there or thereabouts! This race isn't for your average road runners out to get a PB! There are hills, awkward trails and possibly mud to encounter! In other words, a proper trail race! Added to this the race fees are donated to Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. Fundraising The Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is the main charity beneficiary from the event. Eight Point Two strive to ensure that every possibility to help the trust raise money is committed to. For example, all of the free food for race entries is bought directly from the farm. Also, if you are entering the Whirlow Hall 10k Trail Challenge every penny from this race will go to the Trust. If you are interested in fundraising further for the Trust please let us know. To take part contact www.digdeepraces.co.uk The Whirlow Hall Farm Trust was founded in 1979 as an educational trust working with inner city children and young people with special needs or disabilities. Since that date, over 250,000 children have visited Whirlow on a daily or residential basis. We are a unique environmental and educational charity and we are pleased to be the main beneficiary of the event.
