THE RACE Ė A 268 MILE FOOT RACE ALONG THE PENNINE WAY
This is an unsupported non-stop foot race, the 268 mile route follows The Pennine Way, Britainís premier and best known National Trail.
The race will start at 2pm on Sat 10 June 2017 and finish 2pm Sat 17 June 2017.
There are 5 classes of entries
This is a competitive event and we expect that the elite entries will finish in around 3 days. However our philosophy is to be as inclusive a possible, and with the generous cut-off times, we believe that many ambitious walkers and ultra runners will be able to complete the event successfully. Our aim is to get as many of you across the line having had a challenging but rewarding experience whilst completing this epic journey.
The course will closely follow the Official Pennine Way route. There will be only minor deviations to allow you to pass through official check points (CPs). A gpx file with the race course will be checked and shared nearer the date of the race.
We plan to run the race in alternate directions each year, rather like to Comrades in South Africa. In this inagural year we intend to run the race from North to South, Kirk Yetholm to Edale. One of the big benefits of running it in this southerly direction is that the travel logistics are very much easier. For example it should be possible to leave London early on Saturday morning and be on the start line in Kirk Yetholm at 2pm ready to race. We will try to organise shuttle transport from Berwick to KY on that day. The finish, in Edale is also on a good trainline between Manchester and Sheffield. Getting home from there should be easier for most people.
Kirk Yetholm Ė Start at 14:00 Saturday
