White Rose Ultra routes

1 lap of 31.7 miles over the rolling landscape of the Yorkshire dales. Predominantly trails and footpaths along the Pennine Way - Britain's main artery. Route maps and more information can be found on the organisers website

The route is well marked. The signs are A5 size - hi-vis, blue arrows on a yellow background.

Cut offs

We have decided to be a little more generous with the cut offs this year, to hopefully allow everyone to complete the route without any added stress.

*cut off times - the physical cut off times are as follows after these times for your safety, you will be removed from the course and returned to race HQ
WRU 100 - 32 hours
WRU 60 - 16 Hours
WRU 30 8 hours
However; In addition to these times, WRU 60 cut off 8 hours at mile 30, WRU 100 cut off 24 hours at mile 60. (Mile 30/60 is Race HQ) If you are not on your way before these times or we strongly feel you will not make the next cut off we will be stopping you for both your safety and the safety of others.

Retirements

If for any reason you decide not to continue to the finish, please either report to an event marshal – giving them your name, race number & tracker or call the Event Emergency number and we will advise you what to do. Please do not jump on a bus, get a lift, go home or back to your hotel before doing this. If we do not hear from you at the end of the event, we will have no choice but to call out the emergency services to look for you, this cost will be passed on to you.

Event Details

What’s Included

4 aid stations, two unmanned, the second supplying food.

Prizes

1st, 2nd, 3rd for men and women separately over each distance. A medal and a t-shirt for all other finishers.

Raceday Logistics
All runners must register even if pre-entered. Here you will receive your, race number, safety pins and any other information you may need. This will take place 19:00 - 21:00 Friday 1st November and again from 06:30 - 7:50 Saturday 2nd November. (Race starts at 08:00)

If you are late to registration you won't be starting, make sure you know where you are going, where you are parking and don't leave any of this to the last minute.

At registration you will need to bring with you one form of photo identification to show at registration. This can be a photo-card driving licence, passport or any other identification card or membership card as long as it has your photo on. We have to be strict on this one – no ID, no start. Also, bring along your run pack (rucksack/bumbag etc) as there will be a kit check.
You will receive:

Race Number
If you have any special
medical condition which might
require attention, please mark a red
cross in the top right corner on the
front of your race number.
• Your race number must be securely
fastened with safety pins on all four
corners & be clearly visible.
• You will not be allowed into the
runner’s only areas or to start unless
you are wearing your number & carrying the required kit.
• At the finish, positions and times will
not be given to numberless runners
and they will not be permitted to
cross the finish line.
• Numbers must be worn as issued
and NOT be cut, folded, otherwise
Concealed or mutilated in any way, any of these and you won't be getting a finish time.
There does seem to be some confusion over this last point, we did think it was simple but: If you alter the race number in anyway, by folding, cutting or your number is not clearly visible at ALL times etc, that is you telling us that you are no longer wanting to be a part of the event.

Spectators
Your supporters are very welcome to come along to cheer you on, but we do not allow them in or at the feed stations, these are competitor only areas. We would also ask that spectators do not park on the roads near the feed stations as this will result in a lot of congestion and may impede runners and put them in danger from other road users (whose vision may be blocked). Consider this, an event of this size struggles to have a good amount of support staff so don't be surprised if we ask you supporters to assist others and not just you!

    Did the 30 Miles in 2019

    The course was great and well marked along the route. The scenery was beautiful along the way and the course was challenging with a lot of uphill and downhill.

    My main negatives were what you got for your money. We paid £55 for the ultra but were only provided food at one station along the route and water at 2 more. For the money paid I thought this was poor and it would significantly improve morale when running if there was more food available.

    Overall I enjoyed the weekend and would recommend the course to anybody who is looking for a challenging run!

    Did the 30 Miles in 2019

    I really enjoyed it, it was my first ultra and I cannot wait to get the next one booked. The organisation was fab, volunteers were all so lovely and the participants were amazing. My only negative was the medal, I would of loved a proper medal to hang with all my collection. T-shirt was lovely.
