Montane Lakeland 100/50

When: 25-27 July, 2014
Where: Coniston, Cumbria

Why You Should Do It?

To be fair it’s a little bit too late for this year’s event, but it you’re looking for a truly epic ultra running event, they don’t come much tougher than the Montane-backed Lakeland 100 and Lakeland 50 races. Runners set off from Coniston at 6pm on Friday evening and have 40 hours, until 10am on Sunday morning, to complete the circular route with 6300m of climbing over its 100-mile distance.

And that’s without the event taking in the big summits, instead it tends to roll through lesser known valleys and fells for an alternative experience of the area. Softies can opt instead for the Lakeland 50, a half-distance event that kicks off on Saturday morning just twice marathon distance… drop-out rate for the big-un is between 50% and 60%. Best start training for 2015 then.
