Claire’s Peak District Marathon

claireAs part of an ongoing programme to regain her fitness following cancer treatment last year, Claire Cologne is undertaking a solo run … a personal “Peak District Marathon” (27 miles and 1,600m+ of hills across the Peak District). If all goes to plan, this will take place during the summer of 2016 (date tbc).

The route goes from Fairholmes visitor centre in the Upper Derwent Valley to the Grouse Inn, Froggatt, via:Back Tor, Derwent Edge, Stanage Edge, Burbage Edge, Longshaw, White Edge, Baslow Edge, Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edge.

This will be Claire’s first ever trail marathon, having only run up to 16 miles on trails / fells in the past – and that was before a year off for cancer treatment! So this is going to be a challenge!

Claire will be raising money for CCTA and Weston Park Hospital charity.

Please do support Claire by sponsoring her:, or by going along on cheer her on, or even run alongside her for a bit of the route.

Good Luck Claire.
