The Lakes In A Day ultra is a 50-mile race with 4,000m of ascent in the Lake District. The route starts from Caldbeck, in the north, to Cartmel in the South, via Blencathra, Helvellyn and Fairfield (and several others) before dropping to Ambleside and the banks of Lake Windermere in the southern Lakes.
