Race Day

Start Lists are listed below and Final Details will be available at least one month before the event, along with details of all the Check Points, Feed Stations & Spectator Points. Don't forget - as we're pretty much a paper free organisation, your start number and electronic timing chip are collected on the race weekend from the Registration and photo ID will be required (passport/driving licence etc)

Mandatory Kit List - 110K & 55K (will be checked at Registration and spot checks at the Finish) - see our KIT CHECK NOTES to answer Q & A's

The event venue, start and finish will be in Rothay Park, Ambleside. Map, profiles and GPX files of the routes will be detailed on the Course page

IMPORTANT - Strict Safety Cut Off Times will be operated for the event (these have been prepared for the safety of everyone in consultation with mountain rescue, safety, medical and communications experts and will be strictly adhered to. A broom wagon will follow runners around the course for anyone dropping out)

The event requires over 200 marshals and stewards, so If you want to volunteer to help us in any way we would love to hear from you. Check out our volunteers page for more details.
