Dig Deep Races 2015

The Dig Deep events are weekend festivals of running in locations around the UK. If you love running in fresh air, and on beautiful trails, then we have some of the most special and challenging trails in the UK to offer you. Pick your distance…

For 2015 we have 2 events in the UK; Dig Deep Peak District and Dig Deep Suffolk

Each event allows you to take your pick from 4 fantastic races from short trail races through to the Ultra Tour’s (between 50 or 60 miles).

Ultra and Trail running are one of the UK’s fastest growing sports. Running in beautiful locations you can choose your challenge! If you’ve done a half marathon then why not have a go at the intro ultra’s and, if you want a truly great challenge, take on one of the Ultra Tour’s…

The Dig Deep weekend is brought to you by Eight Point Two. We designed and ran the very first Ultra Tour of the Peak District and the 12.12 race in 2012. Both races were such a great success that we just had to continue them. After the success of 2012 and 2013 we've developed the event and have incorporated more events in to the program. Eight Point Two deliver races and events throughout the UK including the Whole Hog Races.

All of the races are predominantly trail races. There are occasional road sections but apart from that its traffic free all the way! All of the races incorporate trails and, whilst we wouldn't describe any of them as being fell races, Dig Deep Peak District enters some hilly terrain. We believe the races show the best of what each area has to offer and sometimes you have to work that little bit harder to see it!
