For 2018 the event will take place on Sunday, 5th August 2018.

The Dovedale Dipper, is a 26 mile circular run or walk, or shorter 15 mile run or ramble through the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District National Park. It attracts some 300-400 participants from all over the UK and further afield. Prizes are awarded to the fastest runners in the both the 26 and the 15 mile events.  Refreshments, all included in the entry fee, are available at the checkpoints and after the event, hot food at Hartington Village Hall.

We accept entries on the day although it is a great help if people use the online booking service that greatly helps with our catering and organisation.
