The Montane Cheviot Goat Winter Ultra - 2nd December, 2023

Starting and finishing in the village of Ingram, Northumberland. The Montane Goat is the first non-stop race of its kind to cover the Cheviot Hills. Considered to be one of the last truly wild places left in England, The Cheviots are a sprawling range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border with one of the lowest population densities of anywhere in the UK.

The Montane Cheviot Goat Winter Ultra will test even the most experienced ultra runner. 55 miles of the harshest winter trails, 12139 ft of lung-bursting ascent including the highest summit, The Cheviot, standing at 2,674 ft. Throw into the mix the unpredictable Northumberland weather that includes everything from deep snow, ice, gale force winds and torrential rain and you’ll be tested physically and mentally.

Non-waymarked and unsupported with a start time of 05:30 GMT in the Northumbrian village of Ingram, the Montane Cheviot Goat promises to be a challenge like no other.
