The whopper

Event details

Events at Whinlatter - Meet at Revelin Moss Car Park

If you like running in circles, and up and down hills, you're in luck!

The Whopper is a 6hr or 12hr looped trail race set within Whinlatter forest.

Each loop is approximately 4.16 miles long (replicating the distance of a Backyard Ultra). You can run continuously, to clock up as many miles as you can, or complete 1 loop every hour to practice the Backyard Ultra format.

The route is rather undulating, but should you complete a loop on the hour for 12 hrs, you'll cover 50 miles and 12000ft + of elevation. Not to be sniffed at! You are of course welcome to come along and treat the day as training, set a new distance PB, or just come for the fun!

The course will be fully marked and marshalled, and there will be snacks and drinks included at race HQ.
