Race news: Northern Traverse, the first ever ultra run following Wainwright's Coast to Coast route across England - May 30 to June 4, 2016

The Northern Traverse - 190 miles across fell, dale and moor

Open Adventure is excited to announce the launch a new ultra run for 2016 - the Northern Traverse - 190 miles across fell, dale and moor. The incredible route follows Wainwright's Coast to Coast - Britain's most popular long distance path. Starting at St Bees on the west coast, the route crosses the north of England through three National Parks (The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors) finishing in Robin Hood's Bay on the east coast. Taking in iconic mountains, valleys, moors and over 16,000 feet of ascent, the Northern Traverse promises to be one of the most spectacular ultra races in the world.

There will be four fully catered checkpoints en route (runners will need to be fully self sufficient between these) and it is up to each individual to decide how long to spend at each checkpoint. Runners have up to 5 days to complete the event, with the fastest expected in under 3 days.  We want everyone who starts the Northern Traverse to finish it!

The Coast to Coast route is not waymarked and runners will be expected to be confident in mountainous terrain and competent navigators.

The race will run from 30 May to 4 June 2016. Entries open on 15 June 2015.
