Dales Trail Series shared The Montane Lakeland 50 & 100's video.

The Montane Lakeland 50 & 100
Matt Neale is a Lakeland 100 legend, having been the only person to complete the course 9 times.

He's also the nice chap that gets up very early to run each DT course at the crack of dawn on race day. His job is checking the flags and route markings to make sure nobody gets lots. What a fella!

GOOD LUCK this weekend Matt, no doubt in a few hours you'll have finished 10!

Jamie McIlvennyI wish I saw this yesterday... I saw Matt several times in the Lakeland little festival village and would've thanked him (the DT40 mental scars have healed now! πŸ˜‚)

Carmen Dojahn-WoodOh my goodness! I didn't realise anyone did that for us - the DT runners. Thank you, Matt! Very well done also, on your Lakeland achievements! How amazing!

MUD, SWEAT & SMILES.

Another superb batch of photo's by Foxgrove Photography from last weeks La Sportiva DT30 in Muker.

Swinner Gill is about as gnarly, rocky and steep as it gets here in the Dales and all you do is smile. Great to see some real character coming through on the photo's.

You are what makes this series so special.

Thank you!

The DT40 is all that stands between 13 (unlucky?) people and a La Sportiva Dales Trail Series GRAND SLAM medal.

To be exact it's 42.195 km (a full marathon) of really muddy, hard, rocky, boggy, hilly trails. 'The unlucky 13' have qualified for the GRAND SLAM by completing the DT20 & DT30.

INVITES have been sent so check your INBOX.

All potential GRAND SLAMMERS have now been included in the GS results noted as (PGS). It does have an impact on the standings, so the DT40 is where it's all going to be decided!

At the moment there are no other places available, we are up to our entry limits.

Chris WoodallThank you. I've entered and done some calculations. By my reckoning if I finish the DT40 in less than 30 minutes I can win the Grand Slam!

Just a few of the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series DT30 winners from Last weekend.

The GRAND SLAM is looking interesting now. We've added 14 potential* 'Slammers' into the mix, it's made things more competitive at the top for both male & female competitions!

More on that soon...

DT30 weekend is here. This is the BIG WEEKEND of the Dales Trail Series! We are looking forward to seeing you all again.

The La Sportiva DT30 is an epic race, in the most stunning surroundings. You're going to love it.....maybe not at the time, definately NOT while climbing out of Swinner Gill @ 20km, but you'll look back in years to come when you've forgotten how much it hurt you'll only remember the good things (finishing & recovery brew).

Everything is in place at this end, we're just waiting for you to arrive. We hope training went well and you're all fit and ready to give it everything you've got.

Please take a minute to read RACE DAY INFO so you know where to go and what to do in the morning.

See you tomorrow and GOOD LUCK.

Mark McKoneI'm the guy who lost his car key within the first half mile 😬 I can't thank the two marshals at the beginning of the race enough for helping me find it and the checkpoint marshals for allowing me to catch up with the sweepers. It was a hard and stressful race but at least I finished it and looking forward to the DT40.

So.....the La Sportiva Dales Trail Series is now totally full for 2017.

We have increased numbers for the DT30 at Usha Gap Campsite so it's going to be an incredible race and weekend. We hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are.

Camping is still available but booking is advised!

Don't panic. We'll release a few additional places for the DT40 for runners who will qualify for the GRAND SLAM (by completing the DT20 & DT30).

PS. Good luck to Joe Faulkner From NAV4 Adventure (Off Grid Catering) who's currently down in Wales doing the monstrous Berghaus Dragon's Back Race for the 4th time (?)! After that catering for 350 hungry runners will be a piece of cake.
