The fourth running of this extremely tough and challenging race which is fast growing in popularity 

With around 14,000ft of climb and 90 miles long, this ultramarathon trail race along the Dales High Way long-distance walking path will challenge your limits like no other.

After finishing the 90 miles for those wanting an even more extreme challenge there is a a punishing 14-mile loop with an extra 2,000ft of climb to High Cup Nick (one of the best views in England) that can be added to round up to a 100-plus miler.
