About Man vs Lakes

Man vs Lakes begins in the Lake District before heading North through mountainous country on a rollercoaster running route that brings you to the foot of England’s most famous Lake where you’ll face a series of challenges unique to Rat Race Events.

Children with Cancer UK is the official charity partner of the Rat Race Event Series. By joining our team you help to raise money for vital specialist research into childhood cancer that would otherwise go unfunded.

Be prepared to climb 4200 ft, cover a distance of over 28 miles, wade through lakes and conquer obstacle courses, Man vs Lakes is the ultimate test of stamina, agility and mental strength.
