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.

The DT30 is a future classic. The route follows the C2C to the tiny hamlet of Ravenseat before heading up and crossing some of the country’s most remote expanses of moorland to reach the Tan Hill Inn, Britains highest pub...push on past dont DNF here.

A section of the Pennine Way takes you back down to Swaledale but don’t get complacent; a stiff ascent of the spectacular Swinner Gill follows. Its then a fast flying descent on moorland tracks to finish through the iconic Swaledale flower meadows at Muker, making this a race not to be missed.

With over 3000ft of ascent this is one tough route.

Just sayin'

The DT20 is an exciting introduction to the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series with testing ascents, spectacular ridge-running and fast technical descents.

This is a fully marked route with rarely visited twists and magnificent views. This isn’t your average trail race and it shouldn’t be underestimated just because of the modest distance.

Entry to the GRAND SLAM opens Sunday 30th Oct 9am.

Dales Trail Series at Wensleydale Brewery.

Your thirst and generosity at the DT30 helped raise £336 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We know these guys do an incredible job so help us raise even more for them at the DT40!

All you need to do to help us raise even more money for this hard working charity is drink beer! Take some home after the race, buy some for friends or partners, stock up for Christmas! It's a refreshingly light golden beer with hints of caramel & citrus. Mmm.

Legend has it has it that an old shepherd once ran a marathon in the hills surrounding Semer Water for a bet. He returned after struggling up the hills for hours in terrible conditions almost crippled. Incredibly he drank a bottle of this amazing recovery brew and woke the following morning with fresh legs looking younger and more handsome than ever before!

This marvellous stuff is brewed by our friends at Wensleydale Brewery.

Make a donation of £3 per bottle...more if you like!
