“The Helvellyn Sky Ultra for me is one of the classic original Lake District Mountain Ultras. It’s tough, technical and a great day out. The highlight of the race is getting to run along the iconic edges of Helvellyn!" - Howard Dracup, 2018
With 57km of Lake District paths, trails and rock and 3700m of ascent, the route will test your endurance level to the limit. But stamina alone won’t get you to the finish line!
You’ll need a good head for heights and nerves of steel if you’re going to traverse five of the most amazing ridge lines in the Lake District! Lower Man to Helvellyn, the awesome Swirral and Striding Edges, Cofa Pike and ascent from Haweswater to High Street.
We have packed the very best of the central and eastern Lake District mountain running trails into this course. From grassy trods and well-worn mountain paths, to bare rock and scree, bog and open fell, it is an epic day out to say the least!
The course is now run in an ANTI CLOCKWISE direction to avoid how busy Striding and Swirral Edges have become.
