Yorkshire 3 Peaks 70/100km Ultra
Our most established race and the first ever to make the classic Yorkshire 3 Peaks route into an ultra distance trail run. Since then, we’ve added the 100km version: Once you complete the 70km course, within a set time, you have the choice to continue onto the +30km to make it a metric century. Or, put your feet up in Race HQ with your 70km finisher’s medal and enjoy the great hospitality in the company of fellow trail runners.

Pen Y Ghent 50km
Held on the same day as the Y3PU. The PYG is an ideal taster for a first mountain ultra, with generous timings and on course checkpoints with refreshments. But far from being the little bother of the Y3pU, each year we also welcome experienced trail runners looking for a quality 50km, on a course which takes in the fabulous Pen Y Ghent and follows in the footsteps of Roman Legions on the Cam Road.

PB55km Ultra Running
A hilly challenge on an iconic section of the Pennine Bridleway National Trail. But this is also an out-and-back course, so what you go up, you will also run down. Flexible starting window and our usual generous timings, so you can choose whether to run with friends, or pitch yourself against the clock and the trail in this time trial format. The PB55 is also a great mini-recce for our PB270.

PB18km Trail Running
Our shortest race, this trail loses nothing in its stature as you ascend both sides of the Pennine Bridleway to South Head. But the views are sustained and superb. The timings are generous, so you’re absolutely welcome to walk up the hilly sections. Or, you can go full-on lung buster! Celebration, finisher’s medals and HQ hospitality await your return.
