Pennine Barrier Ultra 50 route

Although largely a trail event, due to the nature of the event, there are inevitably some road crossings where it will be necessary to slow and possibly stop. Most of these are marshalled as no roads are closed en route. Particular attention should be given at these points.

There are 5 Checkpoints during the Race. Each checkpoint will provide water, a range of refreshments (Juices, Cola, depending on location occasionally Hot drinks) and a variety of snacks. These vary per Checkpoint but tend to include the likes of Bananas’, Pineapple Slices, Slices of Oranges, Watermelon Chunks, Peanuts, Potatoes, Biscuits, Flapjacks, Crepes, Chocolate Crackers, Cheese chunks, Biscuits, Malt Loaf, Oreo, Sweets, Pizza, Sausage Rolls, Sandwiches (Peanut Butter, Tuna Mayo, Cheese), Crisps, amongst other foods. We do our best to provide a range of food for Vegetarian & Vegan diets too.

The Race HQ will have fresh soup for runners as they cross the line for the 50 & the 100 Mile Race.

Cut-Off times per Checkpoint – These conditions include the length of time taken to complete sections of the course and they are implemented by the Event Organisers, GB Ultras, at their discretion, to ensure safe and proper running of the event.

Each CP will have an Event Medic or a Member of our First Aid personnel present. There is a 18 hour cut off time for the event.
