The Three Shires Race is a serious undertaking. The race organisers will try to make the race as safe as possible but we cannot be completely responsible for you during this event! You should not enter these fells unless you have the appropriate navigation and mountain craft skills and equipment. If you aren’t sure what that means then please don’t enter as you may be putting yourself at risk.

The race is run under FRA Rules and we will check that the following minimum kit is carried:- MAP, COMPASS, WHISTLE, FULL WET WEATHER COVER, HAT AND GLOVES. Emergency rations are advised.

A kit check will be held.

Food will be provided at the Finish.

Race Route
Follow tracks to intake gate at GR 296 023
CP1 – Wetherlam – GR 288 011
CP2 – Swirl How – GR 273 006
CP3 – Three Shires Stone – GR 276 027
CP4 – Pike O’Blisco – GR 272 042

CP5 – Lingmoor – GR 302 046
Follow flags from Intake Gate at GR 314 038 to race finish.

NB The Three Shires Stone Checkpoint will close 2 hours after the start. This will be strictly enforced in the interest of your safety and transport back is not provided. If timed out you must still report to Race Registration on your return.


Our valley simply does not have a flat well drained field for parking. The nearest available field is at Tilberthwaite Farm, which sadly means you'll be walking 25 minutes to the Start. The good news is that the route, although off road, is flat and cycle friendly - why not bring a bike? We will provide a tent for your kitbag and a fence to chain up to.
You'll be directed to the car park from the Ambleside - Coniston road: please have £3 ready in cash to pay at the gate.

 Please do not attempt to park on the Little Langdale road.

Leave plenty of time to get to Registration and the Start!
