Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up. The event is not timed so don’t worry about rushing round. There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way. Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved Big Fun Run medal. Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Big Fun Run podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you’ve come with.
Pedestrian access is available near Markeaton traffic island and at Markeaton Lane. You can also walk to the park through walkways all around the park – there are a number of paths along Kedleston Road. There are two car parks in Markeaton Park – the main car park, near the pitch and putt course, is accessible from Markeaton Island, DE22 4AA. The other car park, near the Mundy Play Centre, is accessible from Markeaton Lane, DE22 4NH.

The Big Fun Run Derby route starts and finishes on grass and there are other grass sections on route. And although much of the route is on paths, it could prove difficult for wheelchair users who may require assistance, especially in wet weather.
Got a question or need to pick up a number? Then visit our Help Desk tent where a member of our team will be able to help you. Runners will be able to store baggage at the help desk tent too, however there is no changing facility available.
Bring your own camera/phone to take photos on the day. If you would like photographs of you on the course, please ask family or friends to take some for you. Why not pose infront of the Big Fun Run Pyramid. And remember to smile!
The Event Director and the Emergency Services reserve the right to stop the race at any time, if deemed necessary. These would be in circumstances beyond our control and no refunds would be given.
