"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


A classic Skyrace, back to the roots of where it all came from, the Pinnacle Ridge Extreme is what you've been looking for if you love climbing as much as you love running.
