The 110km Ultimate Trails Challenge is a testing 110km ultra marathon course through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the Lake District. The tough, challenging course is worth 3 UTMB entry credit points and will certainly live up to it's billing as the most picturesque ultra marathon in the UK. The 110km route also includes 6 mountain passes, 5 lakes, 14,000 ft ascent/descent along with 10 memorable feed stations.
The 55km Ultimate Trails Challenge, utilises much of the final half of the 110km course, and is worth 1 UTMB entry credit point, for those wanting a shorter ultra marathon option
