We're incredibly grateful that you've all been so supportive and understanding throughout this challenging time. The fact that nearly everyone has deferred to a different event makes a huge difference to us because it means we can continue putting on the Lakeland Trails in the future.
We were all set for a fantastic year on the Lakeland Trails, with everything checked & serviced and having already bought many of the supplies like t-shirts and race numbers for Cartmel, before we took the decision to postpone it (just before the official lockdown). Since then, our small team has worked extremely hard liaising with landowners, councils, Mountain Rescue teams, suppliers, volunteers (and the list goes on) and, of course, you, to ensure that the events were successfully re-scheduled.
Our plans for a modernised entry system have had to be put on hold so it's been a huge job manually arranging the transfers to different events. Because of this, the information you might like to have may not be immediately to hand so we've compiled this list of FAQs to answer most of your questions about your next event.
Please get in touch if there's anything else you need to know and see you on the Trails again soon!
It's important to keep your contact details (including your address), and those of your emergency contact up-to-date. Please follow these simple steps to check them:
It's really important that your address is exactly the same as it appears on the Royal Mail Postcode Checker and the postal town is in FULL CAPITALS or we won't be able to post out your race number
The entry page for each event will show you its current date. There has been a lot of progress with the lockdown easing considerably, and latest government guidance allows for sporting events to be put on again exempt of limits of mass gatherings and with the relevant safety measures in place. If it becomes necessary, any decision we make to postpone an event will be made in good time - at least 4 weeks - so that you can make or change your plans (unless anything unforeseen crops up). If that were to mean you had to cancel a booking with a local bed-and-breakfast, for example, it will give them the time to fill the places - it's been a tough year for them and we don't want them to miss out!
Once you've successfully completed the form, you would have seen a on-screen confirmation that it was successfully submitted. If you completed the form after 1st July, you'll also receive an email confirmation. If you can't see that in your Inbox, please check your Spam or Junk folder.

Our current entry system is ready for an upgrade and it wasn't designed to allow us to transfer your entry within it so your deferred entry is stored securely on a separate server. Once we're running again, we'll be upgrading our system so that you'll be able to see much more information about your entries.
We will be in contact with you before the 2021 Earlybird entry opens so that you are guaranteed a place in the event of your choice
As soon as we announced an event was being re-scheduled, we emailed everyone who'd entered to outline their options. In the email, we let you know that if we didn't hear from you by a certain date, we would assume you were happy for your entry to be automatically transferred to the re-scheduled date.
