Man vs Lakes - lake crossing

Man vs Lakes

The most adventurous marathon – distance running journey in Britain culminating in a shore-to-shore crossing of Lake Windermere.

Man vs Lakes is nothing like anything you will have experienced.

Enter the Lake District with an audacious and surreal crossing of the quicksand of Morecambe Bay, before heading north through mountainous country on a rollercoaster running route that will bring you to the foot of England’s largest natural lake - Windermere.
