The Wolds Rangers Way Ultra follows the Wold Rangers Way and is a 44 mile circular waymarked route through the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, starting and ending on the edge of Driffield.
The terrain is vast farmland, chalkland and dry valleys through mostly green lanes and bridleways.
You’ll visit the picturesque villages of Little Driffield, Huggate, Fridaythorpe, Thixendale and Fimber.
You get to run through Nettle Dale, Pasture Dale, Horse Dale, Holm Dale, Brubber Dale, Thixen Dale, Water Dale, Court Dale and finally Wharram Percy Wold.
You're provided with a map, tracker and GPX. There are also flags and signs. It'd be tough to get lost!
14 hours. If you can cover 3 miles per hour, you're in.
Run your pace without checkpoint cut-offs. There's a generous 14 hour overall cut-off time which will be enforced.
The cut-off time is based on a pace where you would need to cover approximately 3 miles per hour, to help you if you are a beginner and/or you need to do a lot of walking.
Cups are not provided at checkpoints so please bring your own.

This was my first ultra-marathon and it was a great experience overall. The event was well organised from the information we received before the run about nutrition, route directions etc to the race day running very smoothly. The event organisers were very responsive upon my several emails whenever I had questions about the event. The Yorkshire countryside was a pleasure to run through although it was deceivingly hilly. I would highly recommend this ultra-marathon to anyone. Gregory Sayle
Recently took part in the Wold Rangers Way Ultra and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my first ultra so wasn’t sure what to expect but the organisation of the event was first class. Ryan Gaughan

A beautiful route, a nice level of challenge and a very friendly atomsphere. The organisation and pre-race info was top class, impressive for a first race. Looking forward to running some more in the future! Neil Musgrove
