The Yorkshire Wolds Ultra is a 50 km circular route, starting and ending in the centre of Pocklington. It has been designed by us so that you get to discover the best parts of the Wolds. You’ll visit the picturesque villages of Bishop Wilton, Kirby Underdale, Thixendale and Fridaythorpe.

The route goes through some of the less trodden trails. Those places where the Way’s don’t take you. If you thought you knew the Wolds, think again. You’ll climb up hidden valleys that reward you with incredible views. You’ll run through wild grass meadows. You’ll visit those hidden gems. This course is packed with ascend to keep it interesting from start to finish.

If you are looking at this event as a first time ultra, we’ve made the cut-off extra generous with 12 hours to complete, so that you don’t have to worry about time. And because it’s summer, you’ll finish in daylight.
