From the organizer

Organizer's website

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!
