Race the Sun Lake District

Race the Sun Lake District

Set off at sunrise and race against the setting sun!


Think you and your team have got what it takes to Race the Sun across the Lake District? Join us for this incredible an all-day team challenge to save the lives of sick children and babies.

Welcome to the sixteenth year of Race the Sun – Lake District, an incredibly popular team event that brings hundreds of people every year to one of the most beautiful parts of the UK to raise vital funds for the children’s charity, Action Medical Research.

We challenge you in teams of four to cycle 50 miles through stunning scenery, trek to the top of Helvellyn and canoe a course on the gorgeous Lake Thirlmere – all in one day! Working every muscle in your body has never been more fun or rewarding as you and your team conquer this three-activity challenge together, knowing all the while you’re raising funds for an invaluable cause.

All funds raised by the challenge will support the work of children's charity Action Medical Research, offering hope to the many thousands of families across the UK, who are dealing with the trauma of a baby born too early, striving to support a child affected by disability, or facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.
