This is a very challenging race, but I think if you speak to anyone that has done it you will be told it is well worth the effort. However, I do recommend you check out the race route link before deciding.
- 1 mile swim in Ullswater - England's most beautiful lake
- 38 miles cycle - including the Kirkstone Pass
- 9 miles run up Helvellyn - 3118 feet (England's 3rd highest peak) .....(only 75 feet less than the highest)
If you don't already know, the area is fabulous and well worth making a weekend visit for the race.
