CARSINGTON 7+ | Sunday 19th September 2021 |  9:30AM

05/03/2021 update: It is with regret that we have to inform you that we have been notified by Severn Trent Water management team that no events will be authorised to take place at their visitor sites until 1st September 2021. Therefore, it is with disappointment that we have to announce the Carsington 7.5 will be postponed from May until Sunday 19th September 2021.

We appreciate that there will be many runners who will be disappointed with this news.  All runners who have entered this year’s event will have their entry automatically moved onto the postponed date of Sunday 19th September 2021.  Runners who are unable to make the 19th September date are being offered to defer their entry to the 2022 event (mid-May date TBC).  An email has been sent to all entered runners.

We appreciate your understanding, wish you all good health during this ongoing difficult time and we look forward to welcoming you to the event on Sunday 19th September.


Runners complete a full 7.5 mile clockwise circuit of the reservoir, taking in spectacular views across the water and the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. The course will take the same route as 2020’s event following positive feedback, which is slightly shorter than in previous years in order to avoid any narrow sections.

We welcome everyone over 17 who wants to run whatever their ability or experience.

We are proud to support Derby & District RSPCA as the official headline charity.

The event is proud to be part of the RunDerby Race Series. Click here to learn more.
