Starting from farmer Schofield’s field on the edge of Buckden village North Yorkshire (SD943 768).

This fantastic event is being resurrected after many years, and after the tremendous support and great feedback the WYLDWA received from last year’s Ulfkil Stride Anytime Challenge, we decided to run it as a Challenge Event this year.

The route encircles Upper Wharfedale, which includes Cray, Yockenthwaite, Horse Head, Halton Gill, Foxup, Pen-y-Ghent, Litton and back to Buckden.

A variety of terrain will be encountered from wild moorland to well graded footpaths and bridleways.
Hopefully you will enjoy the stunning views the area has to offer.

Route Information: Distance 24 miles. Ascent 3,200ft. CUT OFF TIME 4pm at Dale Head checkpoint.

Parking is included in your entry fee, if you can please car share if possible.

Start time 08:00 walkers, 08:30 runners.

Registration 06:45 to 08:15.

The event will be fully supported with hot and cold drinks and biscuits before the start, with refreshments at checkpoint One, Two and Five (NOTE NO REFRESHMENTS AT CHECKPOINT THREE) and cold food and hot drinks at checkpoint Four.
There with a hot meal at the finish, subject to any Covid restrictions.
