Following the inaugural pilot event last year, we are pleased to bring you another UW20 and UC24 for 2017. Once again the event is based from Pooley Bridge, but this year we go clockwise around the Lake, so, The Cockpit, Howtown and Hallin Fell first.  After Glenridding, and the checkpoint in the new Helvellyn Base Camp, you will have a choice of two route choices. Either stay low around the lakeshore towards Aira Force and around Gowbarrow Fell, or take on the more challenging and higher level Glencoyne traverse to Dockray, Gowbarrow Summit and then meet up with the original route.
