3.7 out of 5 stars

  • Atmosphere
  • Did the Stage 1- White Peak (50K) in 2018

    Enjoyed the race. Its very much two halves, first half uphill road run, 2nd half much more off road trails. Well organised and everyone was very helpful
  • Did the Stage 2 - Dark Peak (43K) in 2018

    Not enough social media updating . Nice to get a few updates from RD from day one event. Photos of runners and finishers. Aid stations were positioned as arranged but failed to offer any warm drinks ( maybe they were there but not forthcoming) . Food on sat evening would be best left for day one runners , not advertised as pizza / pasta PARTY. Beautiful course and almost navigation fool proof . Poor finishers medal .
