About
A rough, tough, classic fell race packed with variety. This one definitely takes you for a big day out into the wild Western Lakes. On a clear day it's magic, but if the clag's in then the map will definitely need to be out.

Route information
 What a monster! This one definitely takes you for a big day out into the wild western Lakes. 13 miles and a Simon Booth course record considerably longer than that of Borrowdale gives you some indication of what lies in store!
The route is packed with variety and includes much ground new to fell racing. After an eyeballs-out ascent of The Band to Bowfell, the route makes a high-level summit-hopping circuit of Upper Eskdale, including the two highest peaks in the Lakes: Scafell Pike and Scafell. There follows a crossing of what feels like Middle Earth, forging a path from Slight Side to Blisco fast running over the trackless reaches south of Great Moss. On a clear day it’s magic, but if the clags in then the map will definitely need to be out. The final descent from Blisco is notably steep if you choose to take it head-on.
