Hell of a Hill Marathon is arguably the toughest 26.2 miles in the UK, and the toughest 5 consecutive marathons in 5 days in the World - only the toughest dare to challenge the Hill for 5 consecutive days! The mighty Rivington Pike stands 1,191ft tall on the West Pennine Moors, and runners have to pass over the summit a massive 40 times to complete the challenge of a lifetime. A total of 30,000ft of elevation gain (Mount Everest!) and 131 miles of tough stone and mud trail running in the cold Winter months!.
26.2 challenging miles across the glorious West Pennines, taking in the Iconic Darwen Tower!
The route will take you on a journey across the Darwen Moor towards the Rivington, stopping short, the route changes direction and takes you to the Peel Tower and over Holcombe Moor before running back to Darwen.
We absolutely believe this will be an event to remember, giving you panoramic views from the top of the moors, rugged terrain that will challenge you mentally and physically and to top it all off, you will be rewarded with some serious bling and tee for your hard efforts!
Plenty of water/fuel stations along the route and when it's all over, the Olde English Kiosk will be open for food and of course, there is a licenced bar there too!
This is 7 races for 7 days and 7 distances. The event location is Salwick Nr Preston. Lancashire. The dates are from Fri 26th July - Sun 4th August 2019
