Admission: £35 and £30

The course has real ‘bite’ with some serious climbing in the first 6 miles for both half and full marathon courses. The paths are grassy and not technical or rocky underfoot, but you’ll be working hard to summit Winder, Arant Haw, Calder and eventually The Calf. The half marathon route heads east and descends Cautley Spout waterfall, whilst the marathon continues to the halfway stop at Ravenstonedale. Both courses return along the eastern edge of the Howgills, before a real ‘sting in the tail’ in the final miles. It’s stunning, quiet and scenic, but not for the faint hearted. Come and join us for a wonderful day out in the Howgills, bring the family, there’s a free Trail Kidz 1k, so start them young!

The cost to enter the half marathon is £30 and for the full marathon £35. You must be 16 years of age on the day of the race.
