Event summary

Beginning at St Bees on the west coast, the route crosses the north of England through three National Parks finishing in Robin Hood’s Bay on the east coast. Taking in iconic mountains, valleys, moors and over 16,000 feet of ascent, the Northern Traverse is one of the most spectacular ultra races in the world.

Your organiser

Open Adventure was set up by James Thurlow in 2004 in reaction to the lack of Adventure Racing in the North of England. This small part-time business has grown in to one of the largest putting on Adventure Sports events in the UK working with the likes of adidas, Haglofs, The North Face, Merrell, New Balance, Cotswold Outdoor, and Mountain Hardwear.
