  • 2.4km of fully marked uphill trails
  • Manned checkpoint
  • A professional Safety Officer and supporting safety team delivered by Mountain Run
  • Professional Events Team delivering the race
  • 650m lung bursting ascent of Harrison Stickle
  • The chance to run in a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • A great evening out in the mountains with hard-to-earn adrenaline and endorphins ...

The Race Route:

It's short, it's simple and it's a real beast. Start in the StickleBarn Carpark and head straight up to Stickle Tarn via the main footpath on the east side of Stickle Ghyll, take a very short scramble on route and then jump the 'stepping stones' to gain the path on the west side of the ghyll. With legs on fire and lungs hanging out, make the final ascent to Stickle Tarn and a quick energy re-supply at the manned checkpoint if needed.

Now the onslaught continues; head up a well marked trail to the west of Stickle Tarn to ascend the eastern flanks of Harrison Stickle. Push as hard as you can, as there isn't far to go, follow the flags and signs to hit the rocky summit of Harrison Stickle and the finish.

Follow the same marked route to descend and cheer others on.
