The Montane Lakeland 50 is one the greatest ultra running and walking challenges in Europe. It is run over the second half of the Lakeland 100 UTLD, completing the final 50 miles of the 100 course. As it's only half of the Lakeland 100 course it's the easy option.. right? That's the first and worst error you could possibly make.
The route starts from the Northern end of Ullswater within the grand Dalemain Estate before following the Eastern shoreline as far as Howtown. A quick climb and descent followed by a trek along the banks of Haweswater sees you at Mardale Head. The route from here visits Long Sleddale, Kentmere, Ambleside, Langdale and Tilberthwaite before the final climb and descent to the finish at Coniston. It is a truly amazing route and you will visit places that you never knew existed, places which are ignored by the masses..
