Hundreds of extra places for the Ramathon are now available.

Organisers of the returning half-marathon event, which will take runners around the magnificent grounds of Elvaston Castle and surrounding area, have been allowed to increase race capacity to 2,000 places.

The first 1,000 places for the Ramathon sold out within eight hours when they went on sale and another 630 people had also signed up on the reserve list, confirming the demand for an event of this distance in Derby.
