RACE: Lakeland Trails Ultra (55k/100k)
The Lakeland Trails 100K Ultra is our ultimate trail with its iconic midnight start, taking the challenge to a new, but achievable level for a truly memorable journey encompassing the finest trails the Lake District has to offer. The 55K Ultra is a testing ultra marathon course through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the Lake District. The tough, challenging course will certainly live up to it’s billing as the most picturesque ultra marathon in the UK.
As well as those whose goal is to complete their first Ultra, expect things to be competitive at the front. Team inov-8’s Damian Hall has won the 55K for the last two years. Will it be three in a row?
The 55K route includes 3 mountain passes, with 7,000 ft ascent along with 5 well-stocked feed stations.
The 100K route adds in an extra 2 passes, 3500 ft more climbing and 3 feedstations.
The 23K and 14K routes share some of the final sections of our Ultra courses with spectacular views guaranteed.
The courses are all fully waymarked and marshalled, with well stocked feed stations along the route. There are some great prizes on offer for the winners, including prizes in the veteran classes.
