Description

The Salomon 50km Ultra Marathon Trail Race is graded 'Very Hard'. This ultra marathon distance race is not for the faint hearted & we advise you have knowledge of how to use a map & compass, even though it is a fully and extremely well marked route, as you will be taking in 4 mountain passes along the way. This race is for the experience trail runner & is a tough course, but is a classic mountain trail race with a record to beat. You do not need to be an elite runner to compete, but you must have completed a marathon distance at least over hilly terrain and technical paths before entering. The course takes in some of Borrowdale, Buttermere & Newlands Valley's finest trails & views, the race will be run in a clockwise direction. The start is from the KMF events centre Crow Park. 

The course is a mixture of wide open trails, single track (fast & technical), big long ascents & fast technical descents, open valley running & very remote feeling trails around the back of the Buttermere/Crummock Water & the Newlands Valley area. It takes in area's that you will not have run in before. Expect to be blown away by the views of the 4 valleys we take you through & overwhelmed by the quality of running you will be enjoying. This race is not only tough, but is also one of the most scenic routes in the Lake District & takes mountains & lowlands in its stride offering you the best trail running experience in the country.
