Sat 16 Sun 17 November – Peak South & North 43/50/93km

Late autumn trail adventure weekender. Two days of classic trails covering a grand tour and highlights of White Peak and Dark Peak. In our usual Ranger Ultras ‘low-key, great-value’ style, which runners tell us they love. Excellent trail running days in their own right (featuring the Pennine Way and Pennine Bridleway), the PS&N is also an ideal choice for preparation and build up to the Ranger Ultras multi-day, expedition style, Pennine Bridleway PB137km & PB270km Trail Challenges. The route is not waymarked (beyond fixed finger posts) but is wholly on public rights of way. Several on course refreshment and drinks points. Total ascent Day One 1439 metres, Day Two 1649 metres. GPX files are sent to all entries well in advance of the race. Based in Edale, Peak District with plenty of parking. We have bookable hostel accommodation options to help make your weekend super easy to arrange. The village also has a good choice of local B&B accommodation, pubs and shops. There is pre and post event hospitality in HQ, finishers medals and winners’ trophies.

Thanks for a fantastic weekend. In 5 years of trail running I think this might be my favourite event. Food and accomodation was great. From registration on Friday until leaving on the Sunday the hospitallity of the Rangers team was excellent and allowed me to focus on the race. Between the two days there was a wide variety of terrains to provide a good all round test. It was also nice to meet other trail runners to swap stories and ideas. I couldn’t imagine getting all this value for money any where else.

“A very impressive organisation. Everyone so helpful friendly and supportive. Accommodation and food all excellent quality…Great events and all at a reasonable cost. So many races these days are overpriced, so this company is a refreshing change.”

“I have just returned from Edale having taken part in the 2 day trail running event and had never done anything like that before (and was terrified beforehand) but absolutely loved the whole weekend. Everything from the warm welcome on arrival to the congratulations at the finish was brilliant. Your organising team and band of volunteers were fantastic. I am still buzzing.”

“I had a great day, which was my first ultra and first trail race. You definitely set the bar high.”
