Approximately 180km of stunning trail and mountain running over the fells, round the magnificent lakes and waters, and through all 13 Valleys of the Lake District National Park. Starting and finishing in Keswick, participants will follow a route with regular check points and feed stations. The 13 Valleys is open to experienced ultra runners on a self-qualification basis. The event represents an exceptional physical and mental challenge. Over and above the distance, there is significant elevation and uneven terrain to be navigated, this may well be at night and in what could be challenging and changeable weather. The 13 Valleys Ultra will rank alongside some of the toughest tests of ultra running in the world.

Route elevation and distance are subject to change and may vary. Any changes will be communicated prior to the event. Route GPX files will be made available closer to the event.
