No Cure, Always Hope, Ultra Run
The ‘No Cure, Always Hope, Ultra Run’ is a new challenge for 2016.
A 39 mile classic fell running challenge over 25 peaks with 17,000 feet of ascent.
This amazing fell running challenge was created in 2015 by Duncan’s brother and top fellrunner, Simon Booth.
It weaves together the three 10in10 walking challenge routes to take runners on a circuit from the Swinside Inn up Causey Pike, over Sail, Crag Hill, Wandope and Whiteless Pike, before descending into Buttermere. There he will head up Dodd, Red Pike, High Stile. High Crag, Seat, Haystacks, Grey Knotts, Brandreth, Green Gable, Seathwaite Fell, Allen Crags, Glaramara and Thorneythwaite Fell before a descent into Rosthwaite. Next will be a climb up to Castle Crag, Maiden Moor, High Spy, Dale Head, Hindscarth, Robinson, Snockrigg and Newlands Hause, before arriving back at the Swinside Inn.
The inaugural challenge saw Simon out and back in a stunning eight hours and twenty minutes. It is a record that any ultra runner will be tempted to try to match, or beat!
Anyone can attempt the route. You must register your attempt beforehand here, keep a record of the time you set off from and the time you return to The Swinside Inn. Once you register we will send you the gpx file of the route for your device. (You should not just rely on this gpx file, it is necessary that you can navigate competently using a map and compass).
This Challenge is unsupported. There will be no marshals on the fells.
A Roll Of Honour recognising all finishers can be found in The Swinside Inn. Again, we ask that runners try to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship for the MS Society.
You are running the route at your own risk.
