"A journey around the beating heart of The Lake District."t's All About The Route

THE LAP was born when an old, forgotten map fell out of a stack of guides on the shelf. Full of scribbles and crossings out, this became the blueprint for the race we have today.

When planning every step of THE LAP, the question we asked ourselves was always, does it flow?

Forget the distance, forget whether its an Ultra, where does the route take us?

And so THE LAP was born. Born of excitement, excitement at sharing these beautiful trails, here on our doorstep with a bunch of like-minded people.

The route is predominantly on tracks and trails, with some sections of single track and steeper fell paths and occasional unavoidable short sections of quiet country road.

This is a low level route and so is an ideal introduction to off road distance running and will also mean we can go ahead, whatever the weather!

By Road
The southern Lake District is conveniently linked to the M6 motorway. To find Lakeside, leave the M6 at Junction 36 and follow the A590 which is sign-posted Barrow-in- Furness. Approximately 18 miles after leaving the motorway you will reach the Newby Bridge roundabout. Continue through the roundabout on the A590 and turn first right over a bridge and past the Swan Hotel. Lakeside is sign-posted three and a half miles along this road on the right. The Main entrance is based at North Camp which is the second turning after South Camp.

By Rail
South Lakeland is linked to all mainline services. The nearest station is at Grange-Over-Sands which is connected with the stations of Lancaster and Carnforth on the West Coast Line making it an easy destination from London, Scotland, or continental Europe. It is also possible to reach Lakeside from the east of Britain by taking the picturesque Leeds to Lancaster line that also connects at Carnforth. From Grange-Over-Sands station, road transport to Lakeside is required.
