Elevated ridgelines, breathtaking exposure, fast travel on technical mountain terrain. Definitive Lakeland vistas. Classic Lakeland scrambling. Fell running on additives. This is Skyrunning™. This is the Lakes Sky Running™ Weekend.
Save the date - 15th July 2017.
Lakes Sky Ultra™ which is one of the spiciest races in the country. 56km of Lakeland paths, trails and tussock, 4500m of vertical grind, grade III scrambles, and knife edge arêtes - this race has it all. It is not for the faint hearted, and racers will need to be competent on steep rock scrambling sections. It is extreme. It is gnarly. It is hardcore. It is awesome.
Look out for more races coming soon.....
As if the LSU isn't tough enough already! We have 2 races within a race, the Uphill KOM and the Downhill KOM. Both exist on Red Screes...... who ever has the legs at this stage takes home the prize...
