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.

The DT40 is less than a month away! Unbelievable, it doesn't seem like 5 minutes ago since the tough and muddy DT20 kicked it all off for 2016.

The DT40 is now FULL.

Take a look at the GRAND SLAM standings, remind yourself what you need to do. Prepare for the final battle ;) It's still all to play for, now all you have to do is give it everything you have, until you finally collapse on the beach at Lake Semerwater after crossing the finish line for the final time in the 2016 Dales Trail Series.

Your GRAND SLAM medal will have been well and truly earned.

Ha ha, just though you could do with a little motivating :) Can't wait to see you all again on September 24th.

Totally blown away by this last batch of photos.

The brief we gave Foxgrove Photography was to try and capture the essence of the event, the emotion, the pain, the sweat, the inner battles, the relief, the joy, the cake......well Paul Taylor, I think you cracked it :)

Thanks Paul & Vicky .
