Route information
The Full Yomp is a serious undertaking. It follows the Mallerstang watershed and includes six summits over 650 metres high. Fell runners will aspire to beat Carl Bell's 2017 course record time of 2 hours 36 minutes. Walkers should aim to complete the circuit in less than 9 hours.
23 miles, 3,900 ft ascent, minimum entry age is 18 in line with FRA rules.
The Half Yomp provides a less demanding course, but with some rough terrain and the full ascent of Nine Standards it is still more than equivalent to a half-marathon on the flat!
11.5 miles, 1,700 ft ascent, minimum entry age is 11
The Short Yomp covers the same ground as the final section of the two main courses, including the summit of Nine Standards. It provides a great challenge for children walking with their parents or teachers.
6.5 miles (10k), 550 ft ascent, minimum entry age is 5
What's included

Did the Full Yomp in 2019
Great challenging run with quite a good setup. Everybody involved was very nice and supportive throughout the race.
