Lakes Sky Ultra route

This is 60km+ of relentlessly technical terrain, designed to test your mountain running, strength, endurance, speed, balance and skill to the max. From grassy trods and well-worn mountain paths, to bare rock and scree, bog and open fell, we’ve packed in a bit of everything on this fully marked route.

Underfoot terrain will be mixed. Grassy trods, well worn mountain paths, bare rock, scree, single track trails, hard/technical ascents and bone shaking descents will all feature on this fully marked route. Use of hands will undoubtedly be required.
