Route information
Pillar and Great Gable Route
In previous years, it was possible to choose which order Pillar and Great Gable were taken in. However, from 2017 onwards the sequence of these summits is fixed, and they must be completed Pillar first, followed by Great Gable with a mandatory route via Wasdale, and Black Sail Pass.
Scafell Pike to Scafell
The only permissible route between Scafell Pike and Scafell is via Mickledore and Foxes Tarn. To be clear Broad Stand, West Wall Traverse and Lord’s Rake are strictly out of bounds and any participants entering this area, which is clearly marked as Out of Bounds on the map, will be disqualified from the event.
Short and Long Course – Bad Weather Route
There is now a ‘Bad Weather’ route marked on the map. This may be authorised by the Race Director in exceptionally poor weather conditions. The Bad Weather route is clearly marked on the map, and participants are advised to download the Bad Weather route file in addition to the standard course.
We have made these changes to the course for several reasons, but most importantly it is about participant safety, fairness, and ensuring we have a sustainable route that the various landowners are happy with.

Did the race in 2019
Overall good course, amazing views, but the organisation let it down, in the morning the coach didn’t turn up so we had to get shuttles to the start point, the team didn’t advertise as much this year as there was literally a handful of people rocked up for the event which led to a poor atmosphere, hope the turn out is better next year than it was this year
