This 26.2 is like nothing you will have experienced. You will enter the Lake District by striking out with an audacious and surreal crossing of the quicksands of Morecambe Bay, before plunging north through mountainous country on a rollercoaster running route that brings you to the foot of England’s most famous Lake. A shore-to-shore crossing of Windermere at its narrowest point will set the stage for what is yet to come: Proceeding higher into the hills and forests of the area and immersing yourself into the Lake itself, tackling short wades, swims,* slides, jumps and an amazingly bold floating assault course. A trademark Man Vs “Vertical Kilometre” will push those quads to breaking point and help to rack up a whopping 3000ft of ascent before you psych yourself up for a “Swallows and Amazons” rope swing suspended from a crane chucking you into the drink. After clocking up those miles you’re going to be looking forward to a lie down and a pint, sit back and relax as you hurtle across the finish line on our giant water slide.Find out more »
The Lake District is the Adventure Capital of the UK and is the home of Total Warrior, which is now going into its seventh year. It is the perfect venue for an obstacle race with endless hills, rivers, mud (tonnes of it!), woodland and the rugged Lake District terrain. This is before the 25 – 30 punishing Total Warrior obstacles even get a mention! No wonder this event sells out months in advance.Find out more »
Muncaster Castle is hosting the Lake District’s best all-natural adventure race, “Race the Tide” on Saturday 26th August.
Once more the competitors set off across the rugged Cumbrian terrain battling the mud and various obstacles along the way, while the tide will be slowly rising up the river Esk. Will they beat the tide and cross the ford with ease, or…will they get wet?
Runners and spectators will enjoy superb views of beautiful Eskdale and the Western Lake District fells throughout the run. After the race, spectators and runners are invited to a ceilidh with hot supper and a bar also available, to celebrate the outcome of the race.
Located in Cumbria on the beautifully rugged 3,200 acre Lowther Castle estate, this legendary 10km includes the most stunning, but gruelling Lake District terrain and more than 30 hardcore, military inspired, obstacles. Lung busting hills, ice cold river crossings, muscle sapping obstacles and more mud than you can imagine await anyone brave enough to take on the challenge. Make no mistake, this is a course designed to test your physical and mental ability to the absolute limit. Survive the mission and return to base camp to enjoy some R&R in the buzz of the thriving event village.Find out more »
