About the event

Back for 2022! Take on the Yorkshire Challenge in the beautiful Nidderdale area, on the south east edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

Walk, jog or run the course, and choose from the full 100km, a half challenge or even a 25km quarter challenge. It’s your challenge, your way!

The full 100 km route is a varied figure of 8 style route which takes in the famous Nidderdale Way, Ripley Castle, and Gouthwaite Reservoir. You’ll get full support all the way.

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

There’ll also be a challenge base-camp hub open throughout the weekend. Based in Pateley Bridge, it'll provide a range of camping options, car parking, and extensive hospitality and welfare services.
