Malvern Hills Ultra entrants can choose various race distances, between 22, 29, 38, 45 & 90 miles (The Double). The total ascent of the 45 mile race is over 6,000 ft, the 90 mile race is obviously double that!

The race is open to Solo Runners and Relay Teams. Trophy Categories consist for the individual winners for men and women of all race categories, veteran men and women for the 45 & 90 Ultra races only, teams of three, and a relay team event where team members just run between checkpoints. Checkpoints are a minimum of 7 miles and a maximum of 10 miles apart. Completion of the Malvern Hills Ultra 45 mile race allows two qualifying points for Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc Race. The 45 mile race (Purple Route) and the 90 mile race (Black Route) both start and finish at the Abberley Hall School and then to The Admiral Rodney Inn at Martley which is CP1. CP1 is also the starting point for the 39 mile race (Red Route). From Martley the route follows the Worcestershire Way, over Ankerdine Hill and into Storridge where The New Inn is CP2. CP2 is also the starting point for 29 mile race (Yellow Route). Continuing on the Worcestershire Way, over the Malvern Hills and to The Malvern Hills Hotel which is CP3. It is at CP3 that all competitors turn and retrace their tracks back to the finish at the Abberley Hall, utilising previous CP Stations. CP3 is also the starting point for the 22 mile race (Blue Route). For the 90 mile race competitors repeat the same route.

With great success from lasts year inaugural Dark Peaks 30 Ultra Trail, and some fantastic feedback from competitors.
Being described by the elite field of runners as one of the best but hardest 30 mile ultras they have ever raced and truly a classic in the making. We where excited to bring this event back!!!

Starting from the village of Hope, This Ultra will take you into the heart of the Peak District national park, where the total elevation will be well over 7000ft!!

Starting off on the iconic Pennine way you will soon be greeted with some brutal climbs, high ridge lines and fast technical descending, with the time of year and the nature of this course this one will surely push you to your limits!!
