Carsington Water plays host to the Derbyshire Duathlon and trail run. This beautiful Severn Trent venue situated just south of the Peak District National Park in the Derbyshire Countryside has been home to many sporting events including elite selection races and has even been used as a Powerman venue.

Whether you are new to duathlon or an experienced athlete you will love the scenic runs over the reservoir dam and around Carsington Water along with the challenge of the rolling bike course.
