Bowfell and Esk Pike from Langdale -  Exciting, technical, magical and ethereal all in one. 

 

Come and join us on a magical and technical night run over Bowfell and Esk Pike if conditions allow from Great Langdale. This is wonderful in the day, severe in the grips of winter, but combine winter and night and you get something really magical.... assuming the weather doesn't get in the way!

What to Expect

A professionally guided night run covering the route over Bowfell and Esk Pike from Great Langdale if conditions allow. This all depends on the weather and conditions and if we can't make the loop due to conditions then a back up plan will still excite!

Expect it to be dark, expect us to light up the mountains with Silva Trail Speed 3XT's, expect it to be epic, expect it to be exciting and expect it to be extreme and expect it to feel and be very wintery.

Winter mountaineering skills are helpful and not essential. Previous experience of winter mountain conditions is helpful but not required by all participants on this event.
