Rat Race – Man Vs Lakes
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.
