PB18TTT Logo_Poster_A4

The Time Trial is often called ‘the race of truth’. Just you and the trail, against the clock. For our Ranger Ultras’ PB18 TTT you choose the pace: An enjoyable run in the company of friends, or go flat-out and feel the challenge as you try and set the best personal or overall race time of the day.

The Course: Pennine Bridleway from historic Hayfield village to Rushup Edge and back. A combination of fast trails, challenging ascents and superb Peak District scenery. The PB18 TTT is a great opportunity for runners new to off-road, as well as a great middle-distance trail challenge for experienced athletes. Total ascent is 806 metres.

The PB18 TTT is a great spring season trail race in our usual ‘low-key, high value’ style of Ranger Ultras’ events, which runner tell us they love.  Also a excellent choice for ‘tarmac to trail’ runners. Self-navigating, but straightforward route finding with official Pennine Bridleway finger posts to help you along the way. We will also have our Ranger Ultras’ Safety Team support at HQ, and on-course.
