    The route is a mixture of fast trails, technical and challenging ascents, starting in The Peak District, finishing in Cumbria. Total ascent is 6628 metres.

    The course is run over established trails and rights of way. On some sections of the Pennine Bridleway, we will use defined walkers’ alternatives which avoid using roads. For environmental consideration, we don’t add any additional signage, but route finding for the majority of the course is very straightforward. We email GPX files to all entries well in advance and during the build up to the race as well as a comprehensive race briefing document.

    There will be Ranger Safety Team support at HQ and at regular intervals with water. There is a hot meal, hot drinks, refreshments and sleeping space for athletes at indoor checkpoints and the race finish. Finishers medals and winners’ trophies.
