The Masked Rat Routes

Eyam Half Marathon

You might not run your half marathon PB, but once bitten by the ‘Rat Race’ many keep coming back for more. And who can blame them, with an iconic road route involving over 1,200ft of ascent but which rewards runners with stunning views across five counties.

The Masked Rat routes are unmarked and just for fun – all participants take part at their own risk.

Over 100 people have already taken part in the Masked Rat. You can check out their times and positions here

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.

You can find the route as a challenge on Strava
