Alternativel y you can register via post by downloading the entry form here.\nOver 15s only please and an entry limit of \;150 will apply as \;racing spa ce is limited. Too many of you and the cycle course will become dangerous. Numbers will not be sent out but will be collected on the day from the reg istration desk at the Fairholmes Visitor Centre\, Upper Derwent Valley\, B amford\, Derbyshire\, S33 0AX.\nBy entering the event you are accepting re sponsibility for your own health and suitability to compete in such a race and also the roadworthiness of your bike.\nEntry Fee is £27. Getting ther eThe Upper Derwent Valley is clearly signposted off the A57 by Ladybower R eservoir close to the village of Bamford\, midway between Sheffield and Ma nchester.From the A57 the road runs alongside the reservoir to Fairholmes. A number of free parking spaces are along this road which will involve a short walk or ride of between 0.5 and 2 miles. Alternatively\, if you don’ t mind paying for a space\, the visitor centre has parking for around 150 cars. Please do no park on the roadside where restrictions apply. Parking tickets can ruin a day out and bad parking will clog up the valley road.Re gistration deskThis will be outside at the visitor centre. Please arrive i n good enough time to collect your race numbers (to be clearly visible fro m the front on the runs and the back on the bike) and \;bike sticker&n bsp\;and to set your bike up in transition. All racking must be done in ti me for the 9.20 race briefing.Transition areaThis will be 300m from the vi sitor centre adjacent to the west tower of the magnificent Derwent Dam. No competitor’s vehicles may use the road up to it. Please keep your kit tid y in the transition area and respect everyone else’s.The startThe race sta rt is on the road next to the transition area. This will be at 9.30am prom pt.Run routes\nMaps of the routes can be found via the link 'event route m aps' on the main menu.The two run routes are dramatically different. Both follow the same stretch of road for the first 500m down from the transitio n area and along the front of the dam wall. At the other side the courses spilt – left for the fell route and right for the road. The choice is your s which you do first. Either way\, at the end of both runs you will have&n bsp\;run exactly the same distance.The 4.5k fell route climbs up past the dam’s east tower\, follows the flat track for a short distance before turn ing off up the steep climb towards Derwent Edge. It will be clearly marked all the way and will follow a clockwise loop bringing you back down to re join the road a short way along from where the routes split earlier. If it is clear the views over the valley are quite spectacular. Fell or trail s hoes are recommended.The 6.5k road route is as good as flat and follows th e road down the eastern side of the reservoir to a turnaround point. It th en follows the same route back. Again\, a lovely route. Although it is a p ublic road\, access is limited to the small number of houses along there s o it should be pretty free from traffic.Both routes converge and return to the transition area along the front of the dam wall then up some steps ra ther than following the road round. However\, on the second run you must s et off down the road as you did on the first run.The finish will be in fro nt of the dam wall which you will see and work out on your first run.Cycle routeThis is an out and back route x 2 on the same stretch of road. It fo llows the west side of Derwent and Howden Reservoirs for 4.5 miles to the King’s Tree (planted by King George VI in 1945 to commemorate the completi on of the reservoirs)\, round the tree and then return to the transition a rea where there will be a dead turn to send you out for your second ride u p and down the road.Please note that the road is not very wide and it is n ot \;a priority route in the eyes of Derbyshire County Council. It is a decent surface most of the way but it does have one or two rough patches . \;It does not have markings down its centre and you therefore need t o look well ahead. There may be large puddles if it has rained a lot and t he surface may be slippery in places as it is largely sheltered by trees. It cannot be stressed enough that this road will become dangerous if peopl e are riding recklessly. Do not overtake unless you are confident that it can be done safely.There are some tight bends too. Small markers will be p laced out along the centre line of the road. You must not overtake where t here are markers.Other
