A stunning and challenging race over either half-ironman or quarter-ironman distance in the most beautiful corner of the country, The Lake District National Park. I doubt you will find a better value race over the half iron distance anywhere. You really don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds. Superb venue with camping and caravanning right on the transition field next to the lake. It's a great place to bring the family for a weekend with many local attractions very near-by. With two race distances to choose from its also ideal for club trips. The swim is in crystal clear Ullswater, the cycle route is along beautiful undulating and mainly quiet roads with no major climbs. The run is mostly off-road over low fell paths with some fabulous views across the lakes.

This event is open to participants of all levels, both runners and walkers are catered for and are very welcome. This is an absolutely classic 19(ish) miles route taking in four of the Lake District's most scenic valleys and their adjoining passes. The circular route, with its fantastic views, starts and finishes at Rosthwaite Village Hall in Borrowdale, at the southern end of Derwent Water. The first pass takes you to Sty Head Tarn, between the Scafell Massif and Great Gable, before dropping to the beautiful but always dramatic Wasdale, with Cumbria's deepest lake. The second is Black Sail Pass and the third Scarth Gap, which happens to be the easiest ascent of the day. Finally comes Honisters Pass, before your return down to the village hall.

The original and the best. Lakeland Monster Miles is the toughest both physically and technically of all the events, offering a full take of the best of Lakeland riding, and is a great way to end your Cyclocross season.

Lakeland riding throws some unique challenges at riders and it's not just the rocks and mud that make it interesting. Steep gradients and relentless climbing with a bit of typical Lakeland weather thrown in makes the Monster Miles a tough but satisfying day out.

The route starts from Fitz Park in Keswick allegedly the wettest town in England on a tree covered disused railway line, the first off-road sector is a great warm up with a rock filled river below and occasional glimpses of distant hills- a taste of the spectacular views to come.

If you are lucky with the weather, bursts of golden light will be filtering through the trees as the valley starts to take on the colours of Autumn. Once off the old railway you are onto quiet lanes with barely any traffic as you climb up into the hills.

Both the Massif and Mini-Massif follow the same route until the cut off shortly after Cockermouth, with the Mini Massif missing out a section around Loweswater, and the final and highest climb of the day in Whinlatter Forest. The climb through Whinlatter is a long slog up the forest roads, and though your lungs will be burning, it is soon forgotten once you start dropping away down the trails, losing all the hard won height on a glorious descent.
