The village of Hathersage lies in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, and is easily reached from Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds and Nottingham. It’s an interesting and historic village with links to Robin Hood and the Eyre family; it’s also a popular centre for walkers and rock-climbers. The 420 metre swim takes place in a heated, open-air pool with wide lanes making it enjoyable for swimmers of all abilities. There’s also plenty of room poolside for your supporters. After the swim it’s on to the 20K bike and, with a name like the Hathersage Hilly, you know it won’t be flat! However, the hills are not so long or steep, and you’ll be rewarded with some stunning views of the Derbyshire countryside. The 7km run is almost entirely through woodland and open countryside with off road running shoes being an option if it’s wet. Again, the run has a few hills but don’t worry too much – it’s a long, fast downhill to the finish line! With your race over, there is a café at the swimming pool for hot drinks and snacks, and Hathersage village has plenty of tea shops, pubs, and outdoor pursuit shops to keep you busy.
