Organiser's Description

Join us on this spectacular trail running journey as we cross the Lake District National Park - taking in some of the finest trails and landscapes the UK has to offer.

Our journey begins as we pick up flowy mountain trails, heading into hidden valleys and over the mountainous ‘Stake Pass’. Along our way we’ll pass waterfalls, have the chance to go wild swimming in crystal clear streams and travel over Lakeland fells - jaw-dropping views are guaranteed!

This fully-guided and fully-supported adventure takes in a distance of 72km which is split over three days. We’ll aim to cover an average distance of 15 miles per day, staying in cosy pubs little hotels just off the trail which makes for a perfect base to relax at the end of each day.

FAQs

  • GROUP MANAGEMENT

    Being a group of max. 12 runners with a mixture of ages and running abilities we may decide to split into flexible groups, all of which will be supported by our running guides who will travel with us on the trip. By splitting the group will allow us all to move more fluidly, allowing all team members to run at their own comfortable pace, without feeling pressured.

  • TEMPERATURES

    We run the trails in spring when the countryside is lush and green. We can expect daily temperatures to sit on an average of 20 degrees C, however, being Britain there is every chance of a hot spell (25 degrees C) or a colder spell (sub-18 degrees C). This also being the Lake District you should prepare for the high chance of rain and wind, as well as bright sunshine. In the mountains, it is not unusual to experience four seasons in one day.
