I think this race is pretty self explanatory. It’s a brutal race over the three Yorkshire Peaks, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. This challenge covers 23.3 miles with an overall ascent of 5279 feet.

Well, our very own Ben Clare raced this beast in an impressive 3:59:07. This time gave him 170th out of a field of 703 who finished. 97 didn’t.

Well done, Ben. Excellent results.
