The 39 or 24 mile mountain trail runs follow a classic sections of The Pennine Way, in the Cumbrian/Durham Pennines. From Low Force past High Force in glorious Mid-Teesdale, to the amazing geological feature that is Cauldrons Snout and the high and remote and stark Cow Green reservoir. The magnificent geological feature of High Cup Nick is next then Dufton Checkpoint, before the climb to Old Man Knock and the mighty traverse over Crossfell, the highest point of England outside of the Lake District. A long descent to Garrigill, then riverside paths to the finish at Alston completes an amazing day.

Pennine 39 / 24 route
Both routes run from Bowlees Visitor Centre in Middleton-in-Teesdale up glorious riverside trails, past Cauldron’s Snout. From here they split, with the full route going via High Cup Nick to Dufton, and then over Crossfell to Alston. Both routes start at Bowlees and finish at Alston. They are linear routes with a bus ride to the start. The routes share common first and last parts with each other but are stand alone events in their own right. P39 is a key stage of the Pennine Way, and takes in the highest point of England outside of the Lake District.
The P24 route will leave Cauldron’s Snout and head past Cow Green Reservoir and head for the South Tyne Trail. Whilst you will miss out on High Cup Nick and Crossfell, it is still a very worthwhile route and a good day’s run or walk
