The Outside Hope Valley Round originated on 28th March 2019, when a team of staff and suppliers from Outside and Alpkit picked a dark and cold night to run around the ridges surrounding the valley.
The Route starts and finishes at the Outside shop (Main Road, Hathersage, S32 1BB). The distance is approximately 20 miles / 32 km. The terrain is mainly well-defined paths, tracks, and roads; but some navigational expertise will be necessary, particularly in poor weather. A significant proportion of the route is over 1000ft / 305 m. and the total ascent is 4490 ft / 1360 m - see the clockwise profile below:
