YHA King of the Castle

January 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

How fast can you get from the hostel bar to the top of Castle Crag?
What started off as little more than a bit of banter between staff about who could get to the top of the nearest hill the fastest has become a bit of an unofficial season opener for a large chunk of the lakes fell running community. Whether its for the running or just the huge selection of post race cake this event is not to be missed!

If you havent done this one before then its a time trial format, we all line up along the bar and go one at a time. The route is just over a mile and takes in about 800′ of climbing.

This year we’ll have live results beamed down to the hostel with help from Fabian4 event timing. Online entry now available!
