Lakeland 100

28-30 July 2017

105 miles (169 km); 22,493 feet (6,856 m) of ascent

The route started and finished at Coniston with a circular tour of the Lake District taking in Seathwaite, Eskdale, Wasdale Head, Black Sail Pass, Buttermere, Braithwaite, Blencathra Field Centre, Dockray, Dalemain, Howtown, Haweswater Reservoir, Kentmere, Ambleside, Chapel Stile and Coniston Fells. The route consisted mainly of paths and trails and much of it was boggy and underwater which added to the interest.

Starters: 360

Finishers: 223 (221 within 40 hours)

Retired: 137

First Man: Michael Jones; 20:22:19

First Lady: 6th overall; Sabrina Verjee; 23:15:22

Alison Wainwright: 188th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 39:12:07

Steven Jones: 215th; Dark Peak Fell Runners; 39:41:51

Weather: Dry for the first half hour or so before drizzle set in which gave way to rain. Then there was more rain and it eased off before raining again. On Saturday afternoon the sun came out and it was quite warm before the rain started which got heavier later.

There was a shorter version starting at Dalemain of just 50 miles.

Starters: 722

Finishers: 662 (all within 24 hours)

Retired: 60

First Man: Casper Kaars Sijpesteijn; 7:34:07

First Lady: 3rd overall; Katie Kaars Sijpesteijn; 8:02:32
