The twenty mile Ullswater Way opened at Easter 2016 and our inaugural event was in October 2016. We now offered two versions; Ullswater Way is 20 miles, whilst the Challenge route is 24 miles. Ullswater Challenge takes a high level fell path around the head of Glencoyne from Glenridding to Gowbarrow, so gives glorious views ...in good weather!
Once again the event is based from Pooley Bridge, and both routes go clockwise around the Lake, so, The Cockpit, Howtown and Hallin Fell first. After Glenridding, you will have a choice of two routes. 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. The high level route will not be 'open' in bad weather. All participants will follow the lower level 20mile route. (You'll thank me for this, honestly!)
