Lake District Challenge

11 - 12 June 2022
Ultra Challenge
Moderate - Tough

Back again for 2022-walk, Jog, or Run the Lake District Challenge and take on England's finest countryside at your pace.

Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge-suitable for all experience levels-and you'll get the best support& hospitality all the way. Our Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal.

From there it's a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves-with some stunning views en route-before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey.

Push yourself further-100km Full Challenge, with Half & Quarter options also available.

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
