COCKBAIN EVENTS presents The Hill Ultra, an EXTREME test of mental and physical strength.

Its simple, you have 48 hours to run 160 miles. This is 55 times up and down The Hill (part of Shining Tor), one of the highest hills in the peak district.

One up and down stretch of The Hill is exactly 2.9 miles.

The Hill Ultra has an elevation of +/- 6380m, which is like climbing to the summit of Everest from basecamp and back down, almost twice!



'The Hill has a gradual incline, chosen so that there is never a need to walk. It should be runable within the time limit, as long as you keep going, but the MENTAL aspect of facing The Hill again and again will be extreme and for the toughest only'...........Mark Cockbain




With support from Beyond Marathon we aim to provide runners with accurate Sportident timing, a well stocked checkpoint with snacks, soup, hot drinks and bag access.

Finishers will receive a special medal and t-shirt.

The route will be well marked at night and is solid underfoot, even in wet conditions.

The start, registration will be at the Cat and Fiddle Inn (A537 Buxton Road, Macclesfield, SK110AR) from 6pm on Friday the 4th December, with the race starting at 8pm prompt. Parking nearby.


Places are limited and entry will be accepted based on your desire to do this and previous experience.
