As an Individual or Team

 ..Walk, Jog, or Run it

  13 / 14 JUNE 2020 - NEW

Kendal - Windermere Loop

2019 Divider 699

Whether you're a keen walker who's new to endurance events, a Ultra Challenge regular, or a seasoned marathon runner looking to up the distance, this new challenge will be unforgettable, with the best support & hospitality you'll find anywhere.

A Kendal Saturday morning start, you'll Walk, Jog, or Run 100km along trails, over high passes, and around the magnificent Lake Widermere - through day & night (for some) on this 24+ hour challenge.

Or you can do a ~50km 'Half' challenge - and start or finish by Windermere. There's a tough 1st 'Quarter' option to Ambleside taking in Garburn Pass. The full 100km route goes through stunning scenery with over 2,600 metres of climb - which will test you - but will be incredibly rewarding.

With some training and determination you'll be amazed at what you can achieve!
