Long Tour of Bradwell Race


Fantastic route taking in loads of my favourite spots in the Peak District, and I discovered a lot of new paths/link ups while recceing this race too. Particularly the route through Padley Gorge to Hathersage. This is a great race to do as a first ultra – read my blog post about completing this race as my first ultra in 2016. There is also a shorter 16mile option – the half tour of Bradwell. This year the race is being held on the 12th August – race webpage here.

Distance: 56 km / 35 miles (officially 33 miles but depends on route choice!)
Ascent: 1916 m / 6290 ft
Bog level: Pretty much bog free!
Good for: First ultra race
