The Original 10in10 And The UK's Ultimate Endurance Running Event.

A 26.2 mile anti-clockwise circuit of Windermere, taking in Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside along the way.

Legendary fell runner Joss Naylor MBE is Patron of the Brathay10in10. Joss will be on the start line to see all the runners off for their first marathon and returns to welcome them back after running 262 miles over 10 days.

The Brathay 262 is an ultra distance cycling event that involves 10 laps of Windermere, England's largest lake, in 24 hours.

Brathay 262 was the brain child of Paul Sutherland (pictured during the event, right). He ran the Brathay 10in10 in 2015, raising over 3000 to help vulnerable children and young people. Paul said Theres a massive interest in top end cycling events that are technically challenging and take place in stunning settings. A circuit around Windermere ticks all these boxes. Over 10 laps the total ascent is 19,500 feet, the equivalent to cycling up Mount Kilimanjaro, and the distance travelled is 262 miles, equal to a journey from London to Kendal."

Entries to the Brathay 262 are 125 including all meals and accommodation for the duration of the event. Participants also make a commitment to raise 500 in support of Brathay Trust. Places are limited on this event so we are unfortunately unable to guarantee every applicant a place.
