The Montane Lakeland 'Ultra Tour of the Lake District' race is the biggest and most spectacular long distance trail race in the UK.

MONTANE LAKELAND 100 & 50

2017 is the 10th annual edition of the Montane Ultra Tour of the Lake District. Racers compete non-stop across two course distances - 100 miles (ML100) and 50 miles (ML50) taking in the picturesque yet unforgiving terrain of one of the UK's most famous national parks, the Lake District.  Conditions will vary from hour to hour, with competitors needing to carry essential kit at all times. Bodies will be battered, spirits will be tested and those that cross the finish line in Coniston will earn their status and become legends!  #FurtherFaster
