Racers compete non-stop across two course distances - 100 miles (ML100) and 50 miles (ML50) taking in the picturesque yet unforgiving terrain of one of the UK's most famous national parks, the Lake District. Conditions will vary from hour to hour, with competitors needing to carry essential kit at all times. Bodies will be battered, spirits will be tested and those that cross the finish line in Coniston will earn their status and become legends! #FurtherFaster

Course Details

100

The route starts in Coniston and heads South before completing a clockwise loop which takes in the Dunnerdale fells, Eskdale, Wasdale and Buttermere before arriving in Keswick. From here the route heads to Matterdale and continues over to Haweswater before returning via Kentmere, Ambleside and Elterwater to the finish at Coniston.

50

The route starts from the Northern end of Ullswater within the grand Dalemain Estate before following the Eastern shore line as far as Howtown. A quick climb and descent followed by a trek along the banks of Haweswater sees you at Mardale Head. The route from here visits Long Sleddale, Kentmere, Ambleside, Langdale and Tilberthwaite before the final climb and descent to the finish at Coniston. It is a truly amazing route and you will visit places that you never knew existed, places which are ignored by the masses.
FAQs

Who is this race for?

The event requires competitors to be experienced ultra distance runners with excellent navigation skills. The drop out rate for this event is a warning signal for anyone contemplating entry, the majority of those who fail are inadequately prepared. Before considering an entry, consider the preparation, consider the hours and consider what it takes to complete the Lakeland 100. If it was easy, it wouldn’t be an achievement.
