The run section is an out and back 13 mile (21km) half marathon run over roads and mountain trails to the summit of Fairfield. Heading North from T2 competitors take the back roads to the hamlet of Rydal before entering the mountain section. Once through Rydal competitors face the steep, pitched switchbacks leading to the top of Nab Scar 1,492 feet (455m). At the top of Nab Scar the climb becomes less steep and the path opens to a wide grassy ridge, taking in the false summits of Heron Pike 2,007 feet (612m) and Great Rigg 2,513 (766m) before summiting at Fairfield top 2,870 feet (875m). Competitors return to the finish at Waterhead retracing the out route.
