Welcome message from INOV-8
FORGED IN THE FELLS OF NORTHERN ENGLAND IN 2003, INOV-8 IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S LEADING SPORTS FOOTWEAR, CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT BRANDS
We are delighted to be sponsoring the iconic Three Peaks Race for a third year. The 2017 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 64th 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 last year 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 optimized our products to meet the needs of the many terrains we have travelled. Later in 2018 we will use all our experiences gained to launch a world-first in the sports footwear market by incorporating the wonder-material graphene into our new running shoes. Our graphene-enhanced rubber outsoles will deliver the world’s toughest grip. G-SERIES is coming! www.inov-8.com
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.
