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.

Dales Trail Series shared Foxgrove Photography's album.

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 .

Wow what a weekend! We've just got back from Muker and the DT30 to see all the comments on here and the Dales Trails Series Group. It has blown us away.

On behalf of the Dales Trails Team I'd like to say thank you to all the amazing helpers that turn up and get involved in one way or another. Without all their help and goodwill none of this could happen. There have been close to 80 people involved in the DT30. There are lots of people who come along to help out and work really hard all day to make things work. So thank you ALL.

Special thanks to Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team for been there if/when we need you. Thanks to Swaledale-Seedlings for making such delicious food and feeding everyone so efficiently. Thanks to Usha Gap Campsite for the amazing facilities and allowing us to take over your working farm for 48 hours. Superb job done by route markers and sweepers (some of whom ran it twice in 2 days) Thanks to Matt who did a full pre course check early Saturday. We had great feedback about Reeth Silver Band for randomly playing some great tunes up at The Tan Hill Inn! Thanks to lots of other farmers and gamekeepers for all their support. Sam from SL Sports Massage did a great job getting runners legs working again. Thanks to Paul Foxgrove Photography for taking some great photo's. Huge thanks to Swaledale Outdoors Shop - Reeth for giving us time, people, prizes and lots more. Thanks to La Sportiva (Lyon Equipment ) for being first class sponsors and getting behind the series in a BIG way, not to mention making the best trail shoes in the world! (Sorry if I've forgotten anyone, I'm totally fried).

All we ever wanted was to to show you some of our favourite running routes and look what's happened! We've been really lucky to attract such an amazing bunch of runners. Not only is it a quality field but everyone's so friendly, enthusiastic and supportive of what we do and each other. So, massive thank you to all you DTS runners. Huge well done for your effort yesterday and we look forward to seeing you all in September for the DT40!

RESULTS will be up tomorrow. Because now we need to spend a little time with our families and sleep.
