Welcome to THE LAP


THE LAP - Lake Windermere Ultra -  is a 45 mile Ultra Trail around Lake Windermere.

THE LAP 2019 is recognised by ITRA as a qualifying race for UTMB, worth 3 points. 

Open to runners and walkers, fully marked and with generous cut-offs; it makes a great introduction to longer races or a fast, low level option for experienced racers. 

Competitors will have 24 hours to circumnavigate England's largest and most iconic lake, taking in all the best view points on some of the most beautiful trails The Lakes has to offer.

THE LAP was born when an old, forgotten map fell out of a stack of guides on the shelf. Full of scribbles and crossings out, this became the blueprint for the race we have today. 

When planning every step of THE LAP, the question we asked ourselves was always, does it flow? Forget the distance, forget whether its an Ultra, where does the route take us? 

And so THE LAP was born. Born of excitement, excitement at sharing these beautiful trails, here on our doorstep with a bunch of like-minded people. 

The route is predominantly on tracks and trails, with some sections of single track and steeper fell paths and occasional unavoidable short sections of quiet country road. 

This is a low level route and so is an ideal introduction to off road distance running and will also mean we can go ahead, whatever the weather!

A GPX file of the route will be sent out to entrants before the event.
