There are three ultra distances - 60km, 100km and 180km - and a 20km trail distance, each promising spectacular trail and mountain running over the fells, round the magnificent lakes and waters, and through the unique valleys of the Lake District National Park.

We launched the 13 Valleys Ultra with great excitement back in February 2020 – little did we know what was in store, as the nation then dealt with a global pandemic. Our excitement and determination to stage the event has not diminished and we’re delighted that our road to the start line, of what we hope will be a flagship trail in the Lake District National Park, has begun once more.

We are working hard to ensure to deliver a fantastic, sustainable event that showcases the communities, businesses and landscape that makes the Lake District so special. We look forward to welcoming you to the start line in September 2023, for the start of more than just an event, but a little piece of history. Be the first to take on the 13 Valleys Ultra, and say, ‘I was there at the beginning’!
