    Bloody amazing day out with Shell! If you’ve not attempted this gigantic lump of a race then you’re needing to reset you’re priorities.

    It’s tough, lumpy (6 times lumpy) with amazing views (past the mist) and cracking camaraderie!

    Get it booked. In fact get the whole 5 days in the calender.

  • Did the event in 2018

    It's a tough, challenging marathon. Very technical terrain - choose your footwear carefully. I went with massive cushioning for the rocky downhills 'cause I love those and needed to take advantage of them. Anything minimal will leave you tip-toeing those sections but maybe more sprightly up the climbs. It's a half mile long. Aim to run steady, even laps and save enough for the 3.5 road/trail leg back to HQ if you're running throughout the week - completing the 5 laps can feel like "I'm done" - but the run back can feel a very long way.
  • Did the event in 2017

    I entered this event after completing the Bolton Hill Marathon. Despite an injury I still took part with some thanks to a generous cut off time.It's one marathon a day across 5 days. Complete one, two or all five! The event had a new HQ with loos, changing facilities etc. A canteen with hot drinks and food and free parking. The route was well marked and easy to follow. There were a few marshalls but the main crew was at the feed station at the start of tbe lap. No navigation was imo needed. It was a tough course which got tougher each lap!There was bling with the option to buy a tee. Unfortunately no race photography on the first days of event.A great event that you feel you've accomplished something at the end and you could collect all five medals which join to make one.

HellRunner – Hell Up North

Fancy a swift half? Bog off to that. This is the UKs toughest half marathon where Mother Nature will deliver that sinking feeling and more. The bar in extreme mud runs is about to be set at a new level (which is incidentally chest high in Lucifers Lido). Methane-munching HellRunners are now being recruited to tackle the notorious Bog of Doom where the heart-thumping Devils Disco will rock you to glory.

Epic will not describe your experience. Well have you in tears pain and laughter in equal doses actually. Pyro, fun run, Liverpools largest drum ensemble (Katumba), hose wash, fabulous finish line rewards. It just doesnt stop but will you?

As running experiences go, this is Heaven from Hell. Run Happy.

    A fantastic race that I hope to do year on year.This was my fourth time of doing this race and it’s just as good (if not better) every time.The course is a really tough one which changes slightly each year, so difficult to judge whether you PB’d or not.Ive made sure I set off in wave 1 each year, especially if you are going for a certain time as it reduces the amount of time you may have to wait for certain “obstacles”.I particularly like this as the “obstacles” are all natural and it is a half marathon.
  • Did the event in 2013

    Well the name suits it well!It was a few years ago now me and my brother tackled the beast.Jog up and over the hill to get you warmed up, just a fellower racer shared his Jaffa cakes with me!

What you need to know about Marathons

The marathon is the benchmark for any runner. Its history stretches back to the Ancient Greeks, and it now includes all the world’s most iconic running races. At 26.2 miles, it’s a massive test of physical and mental resilience. If it’s a PB you’re after, you can choose a fast, flat city course, or else go for a more challenging trail run in one of the world’s most stunning locations.

Think a marathon might be pushing it? Why not ease yourself in with a 5k or 10k run instead?
