"The race is all killer and no filler. It's Skyrunning with the dial turned up to 11... From start to finish this route has some of the finest technical running and scrambling you can find in the Lakes - you can't switch off for a moment as it's relentless. I think the grins on the face of every finisher says everything you need to know about the race." - R Bannister

"Pinnacle Ridge Extreme, a taste of the Alps in the heart of the Lakes." -M Cliffe

28km and 2700m of technically hard running and scrambling on the backbone of the Lake District, namely the Helvellyn Massif.

This classic distance ' extreme sky race' is one to be reckoned with. Do not think about entry unless you possess excellent rock climbing skills. This means graded routes, hands on rock. Not running/walking to the summit of a mountain over scrambling/rocky type ground

The Pinnacle Ridge Extreme race is all of what it suggests, very extreme.

Expect long runnable and classic ascents through the heart of the Glenridding Mines, technical single tracks to keep you smiling all your way around the course, 5 graded scrambles on route, scree ridden descents, knife edge ridge-lines, a huge ascent profile for the distance covered, medium in distance and completely extreme in its nature.

This race is at the Pinnacle of our events tree, its covered in Ridges and its very Extreme.
