Lakeland 50/100, Cumbria
When? July 2015
It’s the most amazing long distance trail race which has ever been held in the UK. This is the country’s toughest 100-miler, which sells out in just few hours.
The circular trail includes the whole of the Lakeland fells, with 6,300m of ascent. The climb, descent, rugged terrain, darkness and tricky navigation usually guarantee a 50-60% failure rate. The 50-mile version is just half the route, so it must be half as tough, right? That’s the first and worst error you can possibly make.
