Lake District Sky Trails (en-GB)

Elevated ridgelines. Breathtaking views. Fast and furious descents. This is extreme mountain racing at its best!

"What a great event!! Truly epic, incredibly tough and challenging!" - Will M

If you’re looking for jaw-dropping views, technical trails and superb mountain and trail running in the heart of the beautiful Lake District then look no further.

We offer a variety of races from your first semi-technical trail race to dipping your toe into our shorter mountain race distance to the higher level and more extreme and exciting technical mountain and sky races!

Our all-inclusive approach allows you to enter the elegant world of technical mountain running whilst being fully supported by a highly skilled event and mountain safety team.

All of our race routes are fully marked, with the maximum ascent packed into each race distance and have been designed carefully to test mountain and trail runners at different abilities but wishing to push their skills, comfort-zones and nerves.

Our long-standing Rab Scafell Sky Race, Rab Helvellyn Sky Ultra and Rab Pinnacle Ridge Extreme Races are all part of the Skyrunning UK National Series.

In 2023, we launched a number of new and exciting races aimed at increasing the variety and diversity of races available! Check out our St Sunday Mountain Race, Place Fell 15K Trail Race, Great Langdale 10K Trail Race, Stickle Grind 650 and Swirral Grind 850.

All Lake District Sky Trail events are planned and delivered by Mountain Run – the UK’s leading school of technical mountain running.
