Welcome to the Lakeland Trails Ultra 100K & 55K, plus 23K & 14K - 29th to 30th June 2019

Latest News - Entry is still open for the 55K, 23K and 14K

The 100K Lakeland Trails Ultra Challenge returns with its midnight start taking the challenge to a new, but achievable level for a truly memorable journey encompassing the finest trails the Lake District has to offer.

The 55K Lakeland Trails Ultra Challenge is a testing 55K ultra marathon course through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the Lake District. The tough, challenging course will certainly live up to its billing as the most picturesque ultra marathon in the UK. The 55K route includes 3 mountain passes, with 7,000 ft ascent/descent along with 5 memorable feed stations. The 100K route adds in an extra 2 passes and 3500 ft of elevation.


Starting and finishing in Ambleside, the 100K and 55K Lakeland Trails Ultra Challenges take in a complete circuit of the central Lake District, along well marked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways. The 100K route is back by popular demand for 2019 and places are limited.

Runners raved about the new 23K & 14K Lakeland Trails courses this year. Utilising much of the final section of the 100K and 55K courses, for those wanting a shorter trail run option, places will be in demand.

The start and finish arena will be quite a party, with entertainment, food stalls, trade and retail stands and PA commentary.

The courses are fully waymarked and marshalled, with well stocked feed stations along the route. There are some great prizes on offer for the Race, and winners prizes in the veteran classes.
