An undulating 2-lap course within the iconic Alton Towers resort. Starting and finishing outside the Towers, the route begins with a loop of the Dark Forest, which includes the rides TH13TEEN and Rita. The route then passes in front of the Towers and into X-Sector around Oblivion and the Smiler, before going past the lake into CBeebies Land, where you’ll meet characters like the Teletubbies! You’ll then pass Mutiny Bay (and some angry pirates) and through Katanga Canyon, before making your way down to Nemesis. You’ll then leave the resort for a section around the car parks and internal road network, before turning back into the resort at Galactica, and into the creepy Haunted Hollow. A final loop around the Dark Forest brings you back to the Towers for the 2nd lap. One more of the same before the finish, now time to enjoy all the rides!

Open to those aged 17 and above.

Each entry includes:

FREE Alton Towers Theme Park access (RRP. £34) *Only can be used on race day for the person taking part in the race*
