This is the fifth LM42. Underhyped and aimed solely at those with good mountain running and 'hill skills'..this is no tame trail race! You will be going over mountain summits, on mountain trails, so good basic navigational skills will be required.

Expect a very tough mountain trail route including the summits of Helvellyn and High Street, on a variety of terrain but predominately Lakeland mountain paths. Total distance will be around 42 miles with several thousand feet of ascent. An early dawn start will set you up for a daylight completion if you can!

The 'Marathon of the Coast' is run from St Dogmaels on the North Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion border and takes in the entire 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path (The UKs only coastal National Park) and finishes at Amroth on the South Pembrokeshire / Carmarthenshire border.

The path is made up mainly of rugged uneven ground which covers a diverse route that will see you run high along open and exposed sea cliffs as well as underneath them at sea level as you pass through the numerous fishing hamlets, villages and towns as well as taking you through some of the most iconic and historic locations in Wales.

The course is visually stunning and due to the nature of the terrain and the elevation loss and gain being over 30,000ft it is also one of the most difficult you will run anywhere in the world. This really is a bucket list run!

Starting on the bank of the Usk river in the market town of Brecon, the Beacons100 ultra marathon will take you on a journey across the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains, an area we absolutely adore due to its beautiful scenery, and unforgiving terrain.

In a similar fashion to our winter event, the Beacons Ultra, you will find very tough terrain, fell in abundance, changeable weather conditions and the finest support to get you to the finish line. Completion = 6 UTMB points for your efforts.

To enter the Beacons100 it is expected that you will have completed a minimum of one 40 mile trail event in the 2017/2018 season and you can navigate effectively. We will host free navigation and footcare seminars leading up the event so if you are unsure about your navigation ability don't let that put you off. We welcome runners and hikers alike. Be aware that this is an incredibly tough adventure!

The Beacons 100 will begin at 20.00hrs on the 17th of August with a cut off time of 18.00hrs on the 19th of August.

Wholly located within the National Park, and utilising sections of the Cleveland Way, this area is superbly suited to trail running. The course is rich and varied with reminders to Yorkshire's fine heritage all around - from the dry stone walls and disused railway lines, to the hardy sheep flocks up on the moors. The world famous Whitby Abbey is just a few miles up the road, so there is plenty to make a weekend long visit well worthwhile.

Introducing the most demanding and toughest event of the quarter series yet; The Snowdonia Quarter.

The Snowdonia Quarter boasts a breathtaking 50 mile route from the West coast of Wales, through the Snowdonia National Park, over Mount Snowdon to the North coast of Wales.

The challenge can be undertaken as a solo, relay team of two, or relay of four.

The task is brutally simple: To run non-stop from Borth-y-Gest on the West coast of wales, to Conwy on the North coast of Wales. Not forgetting the relentless 3,329 ft ascent to the summit of Mount Snowdon and the undulation of the Snowdonia National Park. This is the ultimate trail runner's rush; with spectacular exposure, challenging terrain and an immense total ascent. Each participant must be prepared both mentally and physically for the tenacious challenge ahead.

Welcome to the SCOTT Snowdonia Trail Marathon 2018, a stunning trail Marathon, Utra Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k, starting and finishing in Wales's outdoor capital, Llanberis.

The SCOTT Snowdonia Trail Marathon is a challenge in every sense of the word. Ascending 1,685 metres over 26 miles of iconic and spectacular trails, this epic race will circumnavigate and eventually climb Wales' highest peak - Snowdon. The incredible route explores the trails, gorgeous panoramic views and tough climbs that make Snowdonia National Park such a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Visiting Rhyd Ddu, Beddgelert, Nant Gwynant, Pen y Pass and Snowdon, there surely can't be a more striking trail marathon route in the UK!

The half marathon option takes in many of the fantastic routes and trails as the half marathon, but ascends Snowdon via the Snowdon Ranger route, rather than the PyG track. The 10k skirts the base of Snowdon before returning past Dolbadarn castle and into Padarn country park and the heart of the Dinorwig slate quarries.

As well as a fantastic day of racing, there will be masses to see and do to keep spectators entertained. This will include hot and cold food, music, a wide range of activities and loads of kids entertainment too.
