The marathon starts at Thorpe and follows the Tissington Trail, up the dales to north of Parsley Hay, where it does
an about turn then takes a left fork to follow the High Peak Trail. From here it undulates level till it joins the half
marathon part of the route at Friden. After this the track descends in three stages, at about 21, 22½ and 24½ miles,
the last descent being about 1-mile-long down the steep incline to the Cromford canal at High Peak Junction. At this
point, the canal crossing directly ahead is ignored in favour of a right turn and heading along the canal path for a
short distance until the next bridge is reached. After crossing the bridge and turning left, there's just over a mile to go
along the tow path before turning right into Cromford meadows for the finish.
