Does Wharfedale 2012 & 2013 half and Yorkshireman half 2012 qualify me?

I'd like to run the three peaks as well (injury permitting)

If anyone wants to do any qualifying races let me know. I'm sure its just two A class long or medium runs or a sub 3.15 marathon.

:silly:

Yorkshireman half is a counter. (funnily enough Yorkshireman full isn't - it's only a cat CL)

Wharefdale full isn't a counter (I don't think - I think it's cat CL).

Full Tour of Pendle is a counter (cat AL)

From memory you need to do 2 from the following categories:

AL
AM
BL

[rules on www.threepeaksrace.org.uk]

Where A/B/C stands for the ascent (A being toughest) and L/M/S standing for distance (Long/Med/Short).
Problem with races like the YM and Wharefdale marathons is the ratio of height to length is diluted by the distance, hence knocking it down to a Cat C race.

Or like Dave M says, I think they would accept a relatively fast paced road marathon. Not that that will do you any good on the peaks.

I've heard people say they don't check - but don't hold me to that.

Wharfedale half is also a counter(BL)

If you've only done wharfedale and Yorkshireman half though I'd advise getting a few more in; an A category race.

Also worth bearing in mind how much of the route is surfaced now (rather than natural unmanaged terrain) when it comes to races/ training.
