The Lake District Mountain Trial is a severe test of fellrunners’ mountaineering ability and stamina in the safe and fast traverse of difficult and often dangerous terrain where navigational skills and route choice are as important as speed. Evolving from a race organised by the YHA in 1952, it is run on orienteering principles and is the longest established event of its kind in Great Britain.

Entrants will be vetted for experience. Please give sufficient information with your entry to allow us to judge your experience, especially if you have not competed in the Mountain Trial before.
