We are delighted to be sponsoring the iconic Three Peaks Race for a third year. The 2018 race was a hugely enjoyable event and we’re eagerly looking forward to our return to Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Working alongside Pete Bland Sports, we will be out in force at the 65th annual running of the event, so watch out for us in the start/finish field and up on the peaks. Also joining us will be several inov-8 ambassadors, including Victoria Wilkinson, who  in 2017 smashed the women’s Three Peaks Race course record in one of best individual performances by a fell runner in the sport’s history.

Operating in over 60 countries, we pride ourselves on designing high quality, innovative products that deliver best grip and unrivalled performance. Our origins and footprints remain firmly etched into the muddy British fells but over the years we have optimised our products to meet the needs of the many terrains we have travelled.

We know fell running is tough, not just on the body but on your shoes too, so for 2019 we have launched the new MUDCLAW G 260 with graphene-enhanced rubber grip. Get insane sticky grip AND increased durability – all in one revolutionary rubber. No compromise.

Three Peaks Race - The Marathon with Mountains

 

The Three Peaks Race traverses the famous Yorkshire Dales mountains of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside is one of the oldest, most famous and best organised fell races in Britain.

First run in 1954, the Race covers 37.4 kilometres with 1608 metres of ascent and descent over the most rugged and spectacular countryside in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, taking competitors to a height of 723 metres above sea level.

The men's course record is held by English international Andy Peace of Bingley Harriers, who completed this gruelling challenge in 2 hours 46 min. 03 sec in the 1996 race.

The women's record of 3 hours 9 min 19 sec is held by English international Victoria Wilkinson in the 2017 race.
