About this event

Walk, Jog, or Run the best of the Lake District.

ultra challenge Logo part of the series

New for 2020 – Walk, Jog, or Run the Lake District Challenge and take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge – suitable for all experience levels – and you’ll get the best support & hospitality along the way.

The Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside, a half-way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves – with some stunning views en route – before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey.

Push yourself further – 100km Full Challenge, with Half and Quarter options also available.
