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

In 2022 the previous FKT was beaten by the first  3  finishers

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.
