Race Description

The Cumbria Way Ultra is an unmarked 73 mile trail ultra race which passes through the varied terrain of the beautiful Lake District, giving over 10,000 feet of ascent. The route follows the iconic trail which was first devised in the 1970s by local members of the Ramblers. The Cumbria Way Ultra provides a relatively low-level crossing of the Lake District National Park, following tracks and paths along valleys and over passes in the midst of stunning and varied scenery. It passes Coniston Water, Tarn Hows and Dungeon Ghyll and crosses Stake Pass to Borrowdale, Derwent Water and Keswick. The route continues to Caldbeck passing Skiddaw House and over High Pike, the highest point on the trail. It then follows the Caldew valley to Carlisle. The event is open to solo runners and relay teams of 2 and 5.
