PB137 PENNINE BRIDLEWAY TRAIL CHALLENGE
Hebden Hey to Kirkby Stephen
137km (85 miles) in 50 hours
Maximum 20 Entries

The Pennine Bridleway PB137 Trail Challenge. Trail running through big-sky scenery on well defined National Trail with runnable surfaces. Generous timings making this an achievable challenge for walk-jog participants. Great indoor venues and on course safety team. But the clock is always ticking, so you need to manage your race pace and strategy to complete all 137km within 50 hours.

The route is a mixture of fast trails, technical and challenging ascents, taking in West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire moors, finishing in Cumbria. Total ascent is 3321 metres.

The course is run over established trails and rights of way. On some sections of the Pennine Bridleway, we will use defined walkers’ alternatives which avoid using roads. For environmental consideration, we don’t add any additional signage, but route finding for the majority of the course is very straightforward and well waymarked. We email GPX files to all entries in advance and during the build up to the race as well as a comprehensive race briefing document. All facilities will be provided by the race organisation, as described, to participants. Shops and cafes on-route are also included. Hence, each participant has access to the same level of support, which is fair to all.
