Race Day

Start Lists and Final Details, along with details of all the Check Points, Feed Stations and Spectator Points will be available from this page at least 3 weeks before the event. Don't forget - as we're pretty much a paper free organisation, your start number and electronic timing chip are collected on the race weekend from the Registration and photo ID will be required (passport/driving licence etc).

Mandatory Kit List - 55K (will be checked at Registration and spot checks at the Finish) - see our KIT CHECK NOTES to answer Q & A's

Full waterproof body cover, top and bottom with taped seams (note - jacket to have a hood, windproof is not sufficient), Head torch & spare batteries, First aid kit (to include minimum blister plasters, bandage and zinc oxide tape to secure dressing), Spare base layer top - long sleeved, Hat & gloves, Whistle, Mobile phone (fully charged), Emergency foil blanket or bivi bag, Emergency food & drink (minimum one power/muesli bar and 100ml water - additional to your general nutrition ie not to be eaten during the event)

Note : compass is optional, and poles and GPS are permitted.

The event venue, start and finish will be in Rothay Park, Ambleside. Map, profiles and GPX files of the routes will be detailed on the Course page

IMPORTANT - Strict Safety Cut Off Times will be operated for the event - these have been prepared for the safety of everyone in consultation with mountain rescue, safety, medical and communications experts and will be strictly adhered to. A broom wagon will follow runners around the course for anyone dropping out.

The event requires over 100 marshals and stewards, so If you want to volunteer to help us in any way we would love to hear from you. Check out our volunteers page for more details.
