The 3 Towers Ultra Marathon

This 37 mile route takes in some of the most stunning views the west pennine moors has to offer as well as taking in all 3 towers, Rivington, Jubilee and Peel Towers! Starting in Sunnyhurst Woods, Darwen, the route will quickly climb up to the first of the 3 towers, the Jubilee Tower before heading across to White Coppice and down to Rivington Tower.

From there, you will navigate your way across to the Peel Tower on Holcome Moor before making your way back across to Darwen, finishing at the Ranken Arms Pub for a cheeky pint! ;)

The terrain is hilly and undulating, and in parts hits public roads.. there will be check points throughout the route with cut off times to reach each CP.

Each CP will be loaded with varied food and drink to help keep you fueled throughout the run... Such as Sweets, Jelly babies, Fruit, Coke, Water, Lucozade.

When you successfully cross the finish line, you will receive a very bespoke and unique 3 towers medal for your efforts plus hot food provided by the Ranken Arms Pub!

This event has a 10 hour cut off and details of each CP cut off will be emailed to registered runners.
