Dig Deep Trail Ultra 60
September 21st, 2019. 6am start.
If you are looking for the ultimate, classic journey through the Dark Peak then this should be on your bucket list. It’s tough yet the route will keep you inspired as you move towards the finish with some of the best trails and views in the whole of the Peak District.
This race takes you on a beautiful and challenging tour of the Peak District, covering around 60 miles of trails and 3222m of ascent. This is a tough event, and totally worth it for the sense of achievement you’ll take away, let alone the views!
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.
We are very pleased to be able to announce that the Trail Ultra 60 is worth 4 UTMB points in 2019.
The route will be marked in places but 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
