Further information

Arguably the toughest 5 marathons in 5 days in the world returns for its 4th year welcoming another 50 runners to take on the challenge of a lifetime. rnA true mental and human endurance challenge open to everyone who feels they have got what it takes to become conqueror of one of the toughest running challenges in the UK. Run one of the toughest 26.2 mile Trail marathons 5 consecutive times with a total climb just short of 6,000 feet per day around an 8 lap fully signposted and supported trail route in the winter months. Run the same course 5 consecutive days around beautiful and brutal Rivington Pike with a generous 9 hour time limit per day. Over the 5 days you will be reaching just short of 30,000 feet of climb on a tough trail course, climb 12,080 steps and run over the mighty Rivington Pike 40 times completing 131 miles in 5 days. The climbs are tough, the trail is tough, the downhills are tough and the weather can be unforgiving at this time of year but we can accept runners of any ability and we will do our very best to get you round a unique and massive lifetime achievement of an event.(Please note this event sold out by June in 2015) Included in your entry fee is Hot snacks when you finish available in our Heated Race HQ, High 5 Nutritional items (gels/electrolyte),Tea/Coffee and other snacks.
