Saturday, 8am start.
An iconic tour of the Peak District ideal for those new to ultras or the more seasoned ultra runner looking for a faster runnable challenge.
This race takes you on a beautiful and challenging tour of the Peak District, covering around 30 miles of trails and 1388m of ascent. If you are looking for your first venture into ultra territory this could be just the thing for you! Many newcomers to ultra running have tackled the Trail Ultra 30 and have continued to come back for more, some even stepping up to the Trail Ultra 60.
The route will be marked in places although navigation/a good knowledge of the area will be necessary. Timing stations will be in place along the route, each of which must be visited, along with all aid stations.
We work closely with the Peak District National Park Authority and local land owners to ensure the event is sustainable and avoids sensitive areas. Please ensure you help us to do this by sticking to the event route and making sure you take all litter away with you.
