About the event

New for 2021 – Walk, Jog, or Run the Lake District Challenge and take on England's finest countryside at your pace. Test yourself on a fantastic Ultra Challenge - suitable for all experience levels. With half & quarter distance options also available - there's a challenge for everyone!

Our Challenge Base Camp is in Kendal. From there it's an anticlockwise loop taking in a couple of hills, Ambleside, a half way point by Lake Windermere, forests, and nature reserves - with some stunning views enroute - before a huge welcome and celebration back at Base Camp after a momentous journey.

You can see your fundraising options below.


Push yourself further and help us to support anyone affected by breast cancer.
