2024 ENTRIES NOW OPEN £58/£60:  Sat 21 September – Yorkshire 3 Peaks Ultra 70/100km (new earlier season date for 2024)

Now in our 9th Year!

Autumn running on classic limestone trails, in our usual Ranger Ultras ‘low-key, big-enjoyment, great-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 Ranger Ultras PB270 and 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. GPX files are sent to all entries well in advance of the race. Based in Hawes with plenty of off-street 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.

Last year’s edition sold out early. We set up a waitlist, but were not able to offer everyone a place. Please don’t leave your entry too late.

A spicy twist to achieve a metric century on the day.

The 100km option for our Ranger Ultas Yorkshire 3 Peaks Ultras. Here’s how it works…

Enter the 70km Y3PU as normal via Si-Entries. Then on race day, provided your complete the 70km loop in 15 hours you can then choose to proceed onto the +30km loop to complete the 100km within 24 hours. With no additional race fee. If you don’t complete the +30km in time, or DNF on this section of the course, you still receive a 70km medal and separate time listing, but do not qualify for 70km trophies.

Race Reports, Reviews & Blogs

2021: Ultra Boy Runs “I am very pleased to report that the Yorkshire Three Peaks Ultra is right up there with the best of them. Rangers Ultra races are some of the best value events around”
2021: Anthony Stevens “The cut-offs are generous, it’s a well-organised race with good variety in terrain, beautiful views and friendly, helpful marshals at the check points. I’ll definitely do the race again in the future.”
2019: Eddie Arthur “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.”
2018: Dumfries Running Club – Seb Pflanz “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.”
2016: Stilton Striders – Katie Hateley “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.”
2016: Tom Hollins – Winner inaugural year
