Three challenging races — DT20, DT30 and DT40 — come together to make the Dales Trail Series.
After a fantastic first year in 2015, the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series returns for 2016 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 90 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.
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.
Huge thanks to La Sportiva, the 2016 event sponsors.
and of course Swaledale Outdoors Shop – Reeth, for providing logistical support and expertise.
