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.

KIT CHECK!

Spring hasn't arrived in the Dales just yet. Sorry to be a bore but I just want to take this opportunity to remind you we want you to be safe :)

Hopefully everyone has received the 'Race Day Info' for the DT20.

Mandatory kit must be carried at ALL TIMES during the race.

Mandatory kit checks may be carried out prior to and at the END OF THE RACE.

Anyone without the mandatory kit will not be allowed to run. (waterproof jacket with taped seams and hood, a cup/bottle and a map of the route)

Here's why......this is a photo of the first climb on the DT20 today, 'tis a bit nippy up there!
