13 Valleys Ultra is a brand new running race, connecting every valley of the Lake District National Park to create one iconic route.
With four distances to choose from, including the epic 180km 13 Valleys route, the races take place from Friday 29th September – Saturday 30th September 2023.
The Lake District Foundation is excited to partner with 13 Valleys to ensure that runners and supporters have the chance to protect the stunning landscape of the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The race organiser is donating 5% of every entry fee to the Lake District Foundation, to help with projects like the Fix the Fells, meaning every single runner is contributing towards the sustainability of our wonderful region.
Come say hello to the Lake District Foundation team at the 13 Valleys race village, where you can find our ‘pre-loved pop-up’ outdoors clothing recycling stall. Located next to Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, the race village will be open to everyone, whether hardened ultra runner or just curious local, come along and get involved!
If you have outdoors gear that you’re no longer using, donate it to us! Your old kit will have a second life whilst raising money for the Lake District Foundation to look after this spectacular place. We’re looking for old jackets, good quality clothes, camping kit, tents, sleeping bags, outdoor swimming gear, hiking boots and any other adventure gear gathering dust in the back of your cupboard.
Find us at the 13 Valleys race village from Friday 29th September – Saturday 30th September.
