If you’re looking for a serious challenge, then this is it. Inspired by the great ultra-distance Sky Races of Europe the Helvellyn Sky Ultra™ is one of the most technically demanding marked races in the Lake District with wonderful terrain demanding that the competitors have superb mountain skills.

With 57km of Lake District paths, trails and rock and 3700m of ascent, the route will test your endurance level to the limit. But stamina alone won’t get you to the finish line!

You’ll need a good head for heights and nerves of steel if you’re going to traverse five of the most amazing ridge-lines in the Lake District! Lower Man to Helvellyn, the awesome Swirral and Striding Edges, Cofa Pike and ascent from Haweswater to High Street.https://www.youtube.com/embed/vTax-ml35Bo

We have packed the very best of the central and eastern Lake District mountain running trails into this course. From grassy trods and well-worn mountain paths, to bare rock and scree, bog and open fell, it is an epic day out, to say the least!
