Please don't enter this race unless you are confident at navigating using a map and compass. It is not a race for beginners.

What a monster! This one definitely takes you for a big day out into the wild western Lakes. 13 miles and a Tom Simpson course record considerably longer than that of Borrowdale gives you some indication of what lies in store!

The route is packed with variety and includes much ground new to fell racing. After an eyeballs-out ascent of The Band to Bowfell, the route makes a high-level summit-hopping circuit of Upper Eskdale, including the two highest peaks in the Lakes: Scafell Pike and Scafell. There follows a crossing of what feels like Middle Earth, forging a path from Slight Side to Blisco fast running over the trackless reaches south of Great Moss. On a clear day it’s magic, but if the clags in then the map will definitely need to be out. The final descent from Blisco is notably steep if you choose to take it head-on.

Please note that Ambleside AC do not allow the use of certain GPS functions for navigation in their races, in line with FRA rules. Before you enter, please read our rationale and details of the rules here.

Please also read the Ambleside ‘Golden Rules’ for fell racing here and FRA safety requirements here before you enter.

If you are at all unsure of your ability to complete the course safely, you should gain more experience and come back another year.
