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

For 2021 the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Ultra we anticipate returning to our usual mass start. But if Covid-19 is still present and social distancing required (oh, we all hope not!) then we will put in place the special measures Time Trial format. Either way, the course remains the same with generous cut-offs. 

Autumn running on classic limestone trails, in our usual Ranger Ultras ‘low-key, high value’ style, which runners tell us they love. A popular and varied trail adventure in its own right, but also an excellent timed choice for Montane Spine Race preparation and build up, with mini-course recce. Several Y3P Ultra winners and completers have gone on to win the following Spine Race series (Tom Hollins – 2017 Spine outright winner. Sabrina Verjee – 2019 Spine Fusion outright winner, 2020 Spine fastest lady. Benjamin Tyas – 2019 Spine Flare outright winner).

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 2185 metres. GPX files are sent to all entries well in advance of the race. Based in Edale, Peak District with plenty of parking. The village has 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. The Y3PU 100km is one of our 2020 Ranger Ultras Grand Slam Series.

  • Eddie Arthur – Oct 2019 – “This is a terrific event; Ranger Ultras do a great job of organising a low-key, low-impact, but highly professional event. If you want inflatable arches and marching bands, this probably isn’t for you, but if you are just looking for a really friendly, well-organised event (and more pizza than you can eat) you should check them out.”
  • Dumfries Running Club – Seb Pflanz – Oct 2018 – “The race is organised and supported by Ranger Ultras, a friendly but extremely professional group of mountain guides and instructors.  As well as being a great race in its own right it gives an opportunity to prepare for longer events such as the Spine Race.”
  • Stilton Striders – Katie Hateley – Oct 2016 – “The Yorkshire Three Peaks Ultra has to be my toughest running challenge to date I would highly recommend it for the stunning views and support.”
  • Tom Hollins – Winner inaugural year
