About the event

Date: 07-08 June 2025

Walk, jog, or run the Lake District Challenge and take on England’s finest countryside at your pace. Choose your distance – the full challenge Kendal loop, or a half challenge, quarter challenge, 10km or our new Lake District Marathon distance. This is a fantastic Ultra Challenge to test yourself. Suitable for all experience levels and you’ll get the best support & hospitality all the way.

Our Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it’s a full challenge anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of tough hills to Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves – with some stunning views en route – before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey. Push yourself further in the stunning Lake District!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

Head to the Ultra Challenge page to find out full details of prices and how to sign up.
