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 & 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 & camaraderie. There’re marquee rest stops, lots of food & drink, medical & 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 & 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 & runs, maps, on-the-day info, and online forums.
