Three challenging races — DT20, DT30 and DT40 — come together to make the Dales Trail Series.

Now in its third year, the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series returns for 2017 to take runners through some of the most breathtaking scenery that Yorkshire has to offer. Conceived as three exciting, stand-alone routes that combine into one great Grand Slam competition – it’s up to you to decide how many races you want to do.

To qualify as a Grand Slammer and claim your coveted limited-edition Grand Slam medal, you have to complete all three races, covering a total of 94 kilometres and over 2,550 metres of ascent. Grand Slam results are then calculated on finishing positions in the three races to find the overall winners.

2017 Dates: DT20 – 1st April, DT30 – 15th July, DT40 – 23rd September

The Dales Trail Series has been designed to help build trail-running skills and fitness over the season as race distances increase – but don’t worry, there’s enough time between races to recover and prepare for the next, longer, harder race.

 The 2017 Dales Trail Series will be sponsored by La Sportiva.

So.....the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series is now totally full for 2017.

We have increased numbers for the DT30 at Usha Gap Campsite so it's going to be an incredible race and weekend. We hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are.

Camping is still available but booking is advised!

Don't panic. We'll release a few additional places for the DT40 for runners who will qualify for the GRAND SLAM (by completing the DT20 & DT30).

PS. Good luck to Joe Faulkner From NAV4 Adventure (Off Grid Catering) who's currently down in Wales doing the monstrous Berghaus Dragon's Back Race for the 4th time (?)! After that catering for 350 hungry runners will be a piece of cake.

The La Sportiva DT30 is our summer classic. Ascending over 3,000ft from Swaledale up to the Tan Hill Inn (Great Britain’s highest pub) this route provides an incredible backdrop to a race that will challenge the most accomplished runners.

There are a few places left. If you haven't already signed up, here's the link.

BOOK HERE: www.dalestrailseries.uk/dt30/

Starts/finishes at Muker, Upper Swaledale.

Total ascent: 992m / 3254ft.

The DT30 weekender …

Camping is available at Usha Gap Campsite, just outside Muker (race HQ). It’s a beautiful location so why not bring friends and family and make a weekend of it? There's a superb real Dales pub just down the road The Farmers Arms, Muker for real beer and great food.

Our friends at Foxgrove Photography will be capturing your best side at various locations on route :) so smile no matter how much it hurts.

We're also going to be fully supported by the superb Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team. It's nice to know these guys have our (your) backs but let's do our best to give them a nice quiet day ;)
