I wondered if anyone wants to join me on this Lake District trail event? I am considering the 15K Helvellyn challenge but there are 5K and 10K options too.
When is it? Saturday 15th October. The 5K starts 11:15, 10K at 11:00 and 15K at 13:00.
Where is it? Start is Ullswater in the Lake District.
How far is it? There are options for 5K (3 miles), 10K (6 miles) and 15K (9 miles) but please note different start times. I am planning on the 15K. There is a 3.5 hour cut off time for the 15K challenge which means our faster walkers could complete it too!
How do we get there? There is a runner at speedwork who regularly enters these events and drives there and back in a day but I was thinking of staying overnight after the event. So driving up on the morning, stopping for a good breakfast about 10:30/11:00, completing the event then checking into an local Inn for some post run celebratory beers and refuelling!
I have been looking at accommodation and, if you want to do the overnight option, it might be worth sorting it sooner rather than later because some of the accommodation close by is already fully-booked for this date.
Please comment / message me if you’re interested in coming along!
