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 dates - 13th to 15th July 2018.

Lakes Sky Ultra™ 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! 

Scafell Sky Race™ is another of the spiciest races in the country. 40km of Lakeland single track with some of the best trails in the central Lakes, amazingly technical underfoot and completely absorbing, minor scrambles (non-graded) and wonderfully beautiful single tracks running from Great Langdale into Ambleside, this 'point to point' race has everything an aspiring 'Skyrunner' could wish for! Its technical. Its completely absorbing. Its over the highest mountain in England and its also completely AWESOME!
