We know the year has been on hold up until now, but fear not, you can now book the date into your diary and plan the rest of your racing year. 

The Lakes Sky Ultra™ is due to happen on the 14th July 2018. 

The start will be at the usual 07:00, all cut off's remain the same, with the course closing at 19:00. 

There will be a limited number of places available and with the race gathering momentum across the globe we expect to sell out months before the race is held. 

Entries will open on the 1st November 2017 at 08:00. 

The Scafell Sky Race™ will be held on the 15th July 2018, 

The start time is to be confirmed, but we're aiming for 09:00. This will mean the  course will close at 17:00 giving you 8 hours to complete this epic race which was quoted as the toughest race Salomon athlete, Lucy Bartholomew had ever done.

 “That was the gnarliest and most technical races I've ever done,” said Bartholomew, who placed first at Ultra-Trail Australia (100K) this year, at the finish line. “It was tougher than [notorious Norwegian skyrace] Tromsø.This race should be part of the Skyrunning Extreme Series. I am so proud to have pushed myself outside my comfort zone to win this event! [I'm] in love with this sport the more places I go and the more people I meet!” 

There will be a limited number of places in this ultra technical race, so make sure you are ready to hit enter. 

Entries will open on the 1st November 2017 at 08:00.
