A point to point trail running event following the whole 43 miles (69km) of the iconic Limestone Way all the way from White Peak to Dark Peak through the Peak District National Park.
The Limestone Way “Half” takes place on the same day but competitors will tackle just the northern 17 miles (27.5km) section of the route from Monyash to Hope.
The ultra route from Ashbourne in the White Peak to Hope in the Dark Peak uses a combination of footpaths and bridleways with some interlinking country lanes and is 43 miles (69km) with 4419 feet (1347m) of climbing making it not only a fantastic running challenge but also an excellent day out in the Peak District National Park.
The route passes through dramatic dales and beautiful Peakland villages all set within a green, gently rolling landscape. It is named after the white carboniferous limestone which is prevalent in the landscape in the southern part of the Peak Park.
There will be three (one on the half) marshalled checkpoints/feed stations en-route which will provide drinks and nutritional snacks; checkpoints 1 and 2 will have a cut off time after which runners will not be allowed to continue and when convenient you will be transported to the finish.
A coach transport option is available early in the morning from the finish in Hope to the start in Ashbourne (Ultra) or Monyash (Half).
At the finish venue a hot meal (including a vegetarian option) plus hot/cold drinks will be provided to all runners.
All online entrants will receive a 2019 Limestone Way tech tee (chose your size when entering) plus there will be prizes for age category winners and runners up presented on the day.
