Een reeks van uitdagende trailmarathons van de organisator van de Lakeland 50/100 mijl.
The third race in the 2017 Montane Trail Tour is nestled amongst the rolling Howgills on the Yorkshire side of the Yorkshire/Cumbria Boarder and the small, picturesque town of Sedbergh will act as the start and finish point for round 3 of our trail running revolution.
You have a choice of two trail running races, the Howgills marathon (Trail 26) or the Howgills half marathon (Trail 13). Both the Trail 26 and Trail 13 routes set off climb up towards Winder, around the side of Arant Haw and over to The Calf whereupon the two routes separate.
From The Calf, the Trail 13 route desends Cautley Spout, Englandís highest cascade waterfall. From The Calf, the Trail 26 route continues along the Howgill Fells and down into Bowderdale. The Trail 26 course continues to Ravenstonedale and then to Harter Fell before joining up with the Trail 13 route at Cross Keys near Cautley Spout. The two routes then follow the river back over to Sedbergh and round the outskirts of the town before heading back to the finish line.
The Howgills trail running event has between 700m to 1000m of climbing dependant on which trail race you choose there is something to test even the most hardened of trail runners. The descents are grassy and can get quite slippy which makes for a technical but fun race.
The Howgills trail running course will be fully signed with bright yellow directional signs and red flags together with our famous ďmotivational quotesĒ to keep you going. This year we will also have mile markers and Strava segment signs along the course.
There will be 2 feeding stations/checkpoints on the course. The first feed stop on the Trail 26 route is in Ravenstonedale and the second feed stop is at Cross Keys which falls on both the Trail 26 and Trail 13 routes.
