Wansfell Mountain Race
Taking in a double summit of Wansfell Pike with its panoramic views across Ambleside, the Wansfell Mountain Race is no walk in the park. Expect lung-busting climbs and quad-crunching descents; the final stretch down to the finish is hailed by many as one of the very finest downhill sections the Lakes have to offer. The route will lead you deep into classic fell running territory, with its mix of singletrack, woodland paths and open fell, we’ve packed enough variety into our ‘long 10k’ (it may be closer to 11 …) to satisfy mountain runners of every persuasion. 600m ascent.
