The Time Trial is often called ‘the race of truth’. Just you and the trail, against the clock. For our Ranger Ultras’ PB55 UTT you choose the pace: An enjoyable run in the company of friends. Or go long, flat-out and feel the challenge as you try and set the best personal or overall race time of the day.
The Course: Pennine Bridleway from historic Hayfield village, south 27.5km out and 27.5km back. The course turn is at car park (Grid ref SK 1120 7248) and will race signed on the approach. A combination of fast trails, challenging ascents and superb Peak District scenery. The PB55 UTT is a great opportunity for runners new to off-road, as well as a great middle-distance trail challenge for experienced athletes. Total ascent is 1711 metres.
The PB55 UTT is a low-key race in the usual style of Ranger Ultras’ events. Self-navigating, but straightforward route finding with official Pennine Bridleway finger posts to help you along the way. We will also have our Ranger Ultras’ Safety Team support at HQ, and on-course.
