The Race

The race will start on the road just below Derwent Dam, near Fairholmes, and will follow the standard anti-clockwise track around Derwent and Howden reservoirs.

Marshals will be on site to help with parking at Fairholmes and also to provide water and support on the course.

About Dambuster

The Derwent Dambuster is an annual event to raise funds for Challenge Cancer Through Adventure. The event is a 10-mile run / challenge walk in the beautiful Derwent Valley. Your entry fees and sponsorship money raised are used to support CCTA challengers undertake adventures which can transform their lives. (CCTA is a charity run entirely by volunteers, so the money raised really does go to support our challengers!)
