Lake District Ultra Challenge 2024

  • Date and Time info: 8/06/2024 - 9/06/2024
  • Location: Lake District
  • Face-to-face

Take on England’s finest countryside at your pace! The event's basecamp is in Kendal and then it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, the Garburn Pass, historic 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 and hospitality, optional camping/hostel accommodation and with half, a new marathon, quarter and 10K distance options available, there’s a Lake District Ultra Challenge for everyone!
