Running in Castleton

Castleton lies on the boundary between the Dark Peak and the White Peak and has to top the podium for runner-friendly properties. Whatever your age, ability or level of enthusiasm you can find a rewarding route to suit. The wilder Dark Peak, with its open fells and gritstone edges, is suited to those seeking adrenaline-fuelled adventure, whilst the White Peak is home to gentler trails through flower-filled limestone valleys. And if neither appeals, keep things low level with a gentle jog around the woods and streams of the hostel grounds.
