It’s All About The Route

THE LAP was born when an old, forgotten map fell out of a stack of guides on the shelf. Full of scribbles and crossings out, this became the blueprint for the race we have today.

When planning every step of THE LAP, the question we asked ourselves was always, does it flow?

Forget the distance, forget whether its an Ultra, where does the route take us?

And so THE LAP was born. Born of excitement, excitement at sharing these beautiful trails, here on our doorstep with a bunch of like-minded people.

The route is predominantly on tracks and trails, with some sections of single track and steeper fell paths and occasional unavoidable short sections of quiet country road.

This is a low level route and so is an ideal introduction to off road distance running and will also mean we can go ahead, whatever the weather!

A GPX file of the route will be sent out to entrants before the event.
