Route descriptions


  • Hercules is starting and finishing in Pooley Bridge in the English Lake District. The route covers 97km and more than 4000m of vertical ascent. The route will take you over mountain summits, ridgelines, and past beautiful lakes.
  • The highest point on the Hercules format is Fairfield, sitting at 873m above sea level. As well as mountain tops, the route also incorporates more gentle terrain but equally beautiful valley paths through Borrowdale and Langdale.
  • The final day is a long one which incorporates an ascent of Sticks pass and then finishes by following the Ullswater Way back into Pooley Bridge.


  • Pegasus will see you covering 58km of Lake District wilderness and ascending more than 2100m. Your journey will begin at Stool End Farm in the Langdale Valley, the route then takes you past the impressive rock face of Great End and the waters of Sprinkling Tarn
  • From the day two campsite in Stonethwaite, you will follow a stunning and more gentle path along Derwent Water before arriving in St Johns in the Vale for the final night's stay. The toughest day on the Pegasus format is ahead of you on the last day, you’ll ascent Sticks Pass and then traverse the single track around the Glencoyne valley.


  • Discover Your adventurous spirit in England's Lake District! Prepare for an exhilarating one-day challenge that will push your limits to the fullest!
  • Lyra is our one-day format. You get to experience the spirit of Highlander without carrying all the heavy camping equipment, but even with lighter packs than the other participants, this is still a tough day out.
  • You’ll ascent Sticks Pass and then traverse the single track around the Glencoyne valley. From here, you can stop for lunch at Aira Force waterfall and then follow the famous Ullswater Way to the finish in Pooley Bridge. It’s 24km of stunning mountainous terrain, and in one day, you will climb more than 1000m, that's more ascent than if you were climbing the highest mountain in the Lake District, Scafell Pike.
  • The day promises not just a physical feat, but also a mental and emotional journey, as you navigate the diverse terrains of the Lake District.
