Welcome to the Lakeland Trails Ultra 100K & 55K, plus 23K & 14K - Saturday 11th July 2020

Our 100K Lakeland Trails Ultra returns again in 2020 with its iconic midnight start. A truly memorable journey, the tough, challenging course through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the Lake District, takes in 5 mountain passes and over 10,000 ft of elevation. It will certainly live up to it's billing as the most picturesque ultra marathon in the UK. Our shorter 55K Lakeland Trails Ultra also includes 3 mountain passes, with 7,000 ft ascent/descent along with 5 memorable feed stations.

The 55K Ultra is worth 3 ITRA points and the 100K Ultra is worth 4 ITRA points towards UTMB qualification.

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 again by popular demand for 2020. As well as those whose goal is to complete their first Ultra, expect things to be competitive at the front. Team inov-8's Damian Hall has won the 55K for the last two years. Will it be three in a row?

Runners raved about the new 23K & 14K Trails when they were launched. 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.
