  • Langdale Marathon & 1/2 Marathon

    The Langdale Marathon races have the reputation as being amongst the toughest road events in the UK. Exceptionally hilly with some parts of the course climbs being 1:3 this challenging race attracts both seasoned runners as well a large number of ordinary people looking to challenge themselves. Hosted in the beautiful Langdale valleys the route takes the runners in an anti clockwise direction from Great Langdale to Little Langdale through to picturesque hamlets of Skelwith bridge, Chapel Style and Dungeon Ghyll. With a low key, friendly atmosphere, everyone is made welcome.img_2043-2
