Ultra Challenge Lake District. Take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Our Challenge base camp is in Kendal, and from there it’s a 100km anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills, Garburn Pass, Ambleside, a halfway point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves – with some stunning views en route – before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey. You’ll get full support & hospitality, optional camping/hostel, and with half & quarter distance options – there’s a Lake District Challenge for everyone!
Endurance events for a wide range of fitness and ages. Choose your Challenge – do it at your pace, and there’re 14 events in the 2021 Series. Our support enables you to go further, whilst enjoying the great outdoors and camaraderie. There’re marquee rest stops, lots of food and drink, and medical and massage teams, with a fully signed route to guide you. A big finish-line celebration awaits with an amazing sense of achievement, and once the aches subside you’ll feel energised, and up for more of life’s real challenges!
Good preparation and smart planning are key to successfully completing an Ultra Challenge. From the moment you sign up, you’ll have access to our Challenge App, with training guides, optional training walks and runs, maps, on-the-day info, and online forums. We will also keep you updated with any news and challenge updates via notifications through the app and emails.
