Route information
The North Pennines is one of England's most special places – a stunning landscape of open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows, tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods, welcoming communities, intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past, distinctive birds, animals and plants and much, much more. In recognition of its special qualities the area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The North Pennines is also a UNESCO Global Geopark – highlighting its globally important Earth heritage.
The race route starts and ends in Dufton village, following the Pennine Way National trail to the top of the famous High Cup Nick, at the top of HCN the route follows a minor path and heads over to Cow Green Reservoir which is part of one of Northumberland’s Nature Parks and home to protected bird species and moorland.
