57km with 3700m ascent | Location - Patterdale

If you’re looking for a serious challenge, this is it. Inspired by the great sky races of Europe, Lakes Sky Ultra™ is one of the most exciting mountain course-marked race's in the Lake District.

The route will take you on a roller coaster of the Central and Eastern Lakes where you will tackle Striding and Swirral Edge's and other technical ridgelines, demanding that the runners have superb mountain skills.

“An epic, brilliant, bonkers race!” Ellie H, 2017

57km of Lake District paths, trails and rock with 3700m ascent will test your endurance to the limit - but stamina alone won’t get you to the finish line.

You’ll need a good head for heights and nerves of steel: you’re going to traverse some of the most amazing ridge-lines in the Lake District: Lower Man to Helvellyn, Swirral and Striding Edges, Cofa Pike, Rough Crag and Long Stile Edges and High Street back into Patterdale

Please note, this is 'NOT A VETTED RACE'   - entry is open to all runners!
