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 2020

2020 is the 13th 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

"This year’s Montane Lakeland was such a fantastic weekend for my own result but also I am so grateful to be there and involved with such a brilliant atmosphere. I may be slightly biased as I have had some great experiences there, then again I have also had a not so good one, but the weekend really stands out as one of the best not just in the UK but out of all of the ones Kim and I have done overseas too, it is really special." - Jayson Cavill
