An iconic tour of the Peak District ideal for those new to Ultras or the more seasoned ultra runner looking for a faster runnable challenge.
This race takes you on a beautiful and challenging tour of the Peak District, covering around 30 miles of trails and 1388m of ascent. If you are looking for your first venture into ultra territory this could be just the thing for you! Many newcomers to Ultra Running have tackled the Trail Ultra 30 and have continued to come back for more, some even stepping up to the Trail Ultra 60.
Part of the DIG Deep Running weekend which kicks off on Friday evening with guest speakers talking running and their adventures. Look out for updates.
The whole weekend will be supported by local running store Accelerate, Trail Lighting Brand Petzl and lead partner will be Scott Running.
The route will be marked in places although navigation/a good knowledge of the area will be necessary. Timing stations will be in place along the route, each of which must be visited, along with all aid stations. There are penalties in place for missing checkpoints – details of these will be emailed out ahead of the event.
We work closely with the Peak District National Park Authority and local land owners to ensure the event is sustainable and avoids sensitive areas. Please ensure you help us to do this by sticking to the event route and making sure you take all litter away with you.
Event Sponsors – where would we be without their continued support? Each will be contributing to the prize pool and also the spot prizes, plus Accelerate giving their time to help bring the event together. Tailwind will also be available to the racers of the Ultra Trail 30 and 60 and
