The La Sportiva Grand Tour of Skiddaw 2019 is a qualifying race for Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc®, giving 3 points.

The route is almost entirely run on public footpaths and bridleways, taking in a climb up the mighty Skiddaw at the approximate halfway point giving a total of 7136 feet of ascent.

Parking is free for competitors on event day plus we have camping available @ £5 per tent/camper van per competitor per night for Friday and Saturday at the Start/Finish venue of Lime House School. The camping is pre bookable and paid in advance during the entry process.
