High Peak Marathon
Forty-two miles. One night.
The HPM is an annual fell run organised by the University of Sheffield Mounainteering Club. In the first weekend of March every year up to 50 teams of 4 set off at night to run/walk the demanding route around the Derwent watershed, starting and finishing in Edale Town Hall.
USMC submits 2 teams to take on this epic race each year and are in charge of manning the checkpoints.
8 of the most dedicated and/or experienced fell runners from the club will be chosen by the committee to run HPM.
We hold runs once a week from October up until the race in March. If you're interested in training and running with us contact Nea and George at
