The Lake District Grand Tour 400 is a spectacular 400 km/250 mile ultra trail race in the Lake District. This roller coaster route with around 17,000 m+ / 55,800 ft+ elevation gain explores every corner of the National Park – It crosses 30 mountain passes, links all 13 valleys, visits 10 of the 16 lakes, has only 42 km / 26 miles of tarmac and has even less flat running.
Scenic trails, dramatic scenery and breathtaking views are the rewards for completing the LDGT 400. But be warned – it’s a tough route that will really test your mental strength, your physical endurance, and how well you cope with sleep deprivation and other personal challenges. The LDGT 400 is an unforgiving race for the ill-prepared.
