Billed as the ‘UK’s toughest’, the race will be held on Sunday 19 April and involves a 5km run over a mixture of road and trail, followed by a 33km bike loop that features around 500m of elevation, and a final 5km run loop that finishes in the grounds of Ludlow Castle.

Each run loop has a couple of steep sections of climbing, notably the Lactic Ladder, and takes athletes across Whitcliffe Common which promises stunning views of the whole town.
