Lake District Ultra Challenge
Walk, jog, or run the Lake District Challenge and take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge – suitable for all experience levels – and you’ll get the best support and hospitality all the way.
Our Challenge basecamp is in Kendal. From there it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, the Garburn Pass, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves – with some stunning views en-route – before a huge welcome and celebration back at basecamp after a momentous journey.
You’ll get full support & hospitality, optional camping / hostel accommodation, and with half, a new marathon, quarter & 10K distance options also, there’s a Lake District Challenge for everyone!
Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
