Event Details

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the 2020 HOTH Weekend has been postponed to 2021

Hell On The Humber an endurance event series like no other, and each year on the third weekend in August (otherwise known as HOTH weekend), hundreds of runners and walkers from across the UK and Europe descend on the world famous Humber Bridge, to test themselves in running, walking, shuffling, and crawling over it.



HOTH sees the many competitors taking on the tough and demanding Hell On The Humber route on the Humber Bridge for 6, 12, 24, or 36 hours, as they try to complete as many 4 mile laps as possible in that time. There's no upper mileage limit, though there are long standing and pretty impressive course records. All we ask is that participants complete a minimum of one 4 mile lap every 3 hours.  How hard could it be???


The Ouzo - New for 2021

The Ouzo is the reincarnation of the 20kg weighted race from HOTH of old, which sees participants carry a 20kg pack for the duration of the 12 Hour HOTH event (all usual HOTH rules still apply!).


You don't have to be an Ultra runner to take part in the HOTH Event Series, though many experienced long distance runners from across the country do return to the event year after year and rack up some impressive distances. You don't even have to be a runner to take part, walkers are always welcome.  All we ask is that you complete the minimum number of laps, you're 18 or over for the 12, 24, and 36 hour races and 16 and over for the 6 hour (under 18's require parental consent), and that you be part of the event with the right attitude, that being one of enjoyment, personal challenge, inclusion, and support. Egos aren't welcome.  Every finisher receives the coveted finisher's shirt, and has their mileage added to the HOTH Leaderboard.  There's also a very bling finisher's medal!

Charity Runners

Many HOTH runners take part in the events to raise much needed funds for charities and good causes, and we encourage this and support the runners where possible.  Unfortunately, we're not able to offer any free races for these charity runners, as all of our free charity places are currently donated to the Ellie Penrose Fund.  The fund is a charity set up by the family of Ellie Penrose, a close friend, HOTH crew member and runner, and youngest ever HOTH competitor, to allow them to support young people in their sporting endeavours.  To take one of these five free charity places you should contact the race director -


The number of HOTH Event entries is strictly LIMITED, and once sold out we will operate a waiting list.


Provisional Dates Disclaimer

While all event dates are agreed in principle approximately one year in advance, they retain their provisional status due to the nature of the course.  It is possible that urgent engineering works or other unforseen challenges may force the bridge management to ask us to reschedule.  Should this highly unlikely scenario take place, the event will be rescheduled to the next available date in the same year, and all entries will be moved to this event.  By entering a HOTH Event you are agreeing that you understand and accept this contingency.
