Read on for our excellent value 'extra' course bonus...

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Ultra is an adventure for all ultra-racers, from first timers all the way to elite athletes. The route runs through superb and inspiring North Yorkshire scenery over classic limestone trails. Racers' reviews of race include "The best ultra I've ever raced"   "A instant classic"   "Fantastic experience"   "A gem of a race"
