Described as the deepest, steepest and the highest, this half Ironman challenge is surely one of the toughest in the Country. The swim is in Wastwater, the Lake District's deepest; the bike leg has 7,217ft of climb over the big three Lakeland passes - Kirkstone via the 'Struggle', Wrynose and Hardnott, both directions - and is described as the steepest and most gruelling half Iron Bike section anywhere in the World; the run around the stunning Fairfield Horseshoe ascends over 2,600ft. But it's not so much the total ascent that will hurt, it's the severity that will cause the damage!
