Message to new and existing participants, we’re still racing!

For 2021 the Pen Y Ghent 50km Ultra we anticipate returning to our usual mass start. But if Covid-19 is still present and social distancing required, then we will put in place the special measures Time Trial format. Either way, the course remains the same with generous cut-offs. 

A great autumn season trail race in our usual Ranger Ultras ‘low-key, high value’ style, which runners tell us they love. Also a excellent choice for ‘first mountain ultra’ runners. The route is not waymarked (beyond fixed finger posts) but is a straightforward out, over Pen-Y-Ghent and back route based in Hawes, Yorkshire Dales. Total ascent 1280 metres. GPX file is sent to all entries well in advance of the race. Refreshment and drinks on the course. In the village is a good choice of local B&B accommodation, pubs and shops. We offer pre and post event hospitality in HQ, finishers medals and winners’ trophies.
