8.2 are once again putting on a great series of races in the Peak District. This year, under the new name of the DIG DEEP RACES, the races will take place over the weekend of the 13th and 14th July. (www.digdeepraces.co.uk)

The weekend will include the Ultra Tour of the Peak District (60 miles), The Intro Ultra (30 miles), 12.12 Trail Race (12.12 miles) and the Whirlow 10k Trail Challenge (6 miles). Four great races. One great weekend!

With plenty of bookings coming in for all 4 events over the Dig Deep weekend its good to see that the good folk of the UK are setting their goals and getting motivated for the Summer! The Ultra Tour of the Peak District and the Intro Ultra are the most popular races so far with a marked increase in the number of bookings over last years races.

Dates will be available soon for training and recce weekends which we are aiming to do in conjunction with some of the sponsors of this years event. More news on this soon…

We hope you are managing to get out and get your training in ready for this years races despite this cold weather! The big question is exactly how much snow are we going to get??
