Event information

We are excited to introduce the Derby 5 Mile which will take place on the same day as the Asda Foundation Derby Half Marathon.

This brand new event aims to attract runners of all ages and abilities to the City Centre to encourage an even greater boost for charities and offer a fun and friendly route to inspire more people in getting active for 2020.

The 5-mile distance features the same start and finish as the half marathon and will set off from Iron Gate. It will take runners on the same route as the half marathon distance, running through the city centre for the first 2 miles. Shortly after 2 miles, runners will then make their way towards Derby County’s Pride Park Stadium and head back towards the City Centre, finishing where the journey began, at Iron Gate.
