Date:  Saturday 19 October 2024

Distance:  30 miles (Short)

Ascent:  TBC

Previously known as The Yorkshire Trod, a self-navigated event with no way markers and few marshals so map reading, navigation skills and experience on the fells is a requirement of entering this race and you are agreeing to this rule when entering.

New for 2024 The Ultra Tour Yorkshire Dales will have a GPX for the 100k, 50k and 25k.

Although the GPX shows the most popular route, those who wish still have route choice between each Checkpoints so long as the Event Rules are followed in terms of out of bound areas. See Rules. The 25k is a fixed route and the gpx must be followed.

The route takes you through Threshfield to Weets Top at Malham, along the shore of Malham Tarn before heading across the moor descending into Arncliffe. From Arncliffe (checkpoint and food station) you will go through the villages of Litton, Buckden, Starbotton and Kettlewell (the 100k will climb Buckden Pike H-702m) before returning to Grassington.

For inclusion in the 2024 Runfurther series you must complete the 30 mile course
