Eyam Half Marathon

The North's most scenic half is back

Socially Distanced Half Marathon, Fell Race and Kids Challenges

We know how special the ‘Rat Race’ is and, like you, we were incredibly disappointed earlier in the year when the Coronavirus crisis forced us to cancel Eyam Half Marathon -particularly as 2020 was to have been our comeback year.

But, now you can still complete the North’s most scenic road half marathon course and raise some money for charity, by taking part in one of our Masked Rat events.

You can choose to complete either Eyam Half Marathon or Eyam Fell Race on any date between September 14 and October 25. Kids can choose one of our Masked Rat Kids Runs

There is no need to register in advance. Just pick your route and turn up on your chosen day. The start and finish for both Eyam Half Marathon and for the Fell Race will The Miners Arms, Eyam S32 5RG.

Once you have completed your run just pop into either The Miner’s Arms or Eyam Tea Rooms – both just off the main square in the village to pay the entry fee of £10 (£6 for kids), register your time and collect an exclusive, limited edition Masked Rat Beanie – and who would not run through fire to get their hands on such a prize!!

All money raised from this – and our Masked Rat Kids Runs – will go towards cancer charities and local good causes.

So, what are you waiting for? You can still take part in one of the road racing calendar’s classic routes this year or the tough but beautiful Eyam Fell Race. The choice is yours.

Enjoy and we look forward to seeing you all on the official start line on May 16, 2021!

Next Eyam Half Marathon to Sunday, May 16th 2021.
