That's Lyth 2021 - Postponed but Try our Anytime Challenge

We are sorry to report that we have decided to postpone our 40th That's Lyth event which was due to be held on 31 January 2021 due to the ongoing COVID Pandemic.

But all is not lost! We have created a brand new event, with a new route using interesting new paths and offering new views called That's Lyth Anytime Challenge. The route is 21 miles (33.7K) and visits Scout Scar, Levens, Whitbarrow Scar, Crosthwaite, Underbarrow and Cunswick Scar. 

You can participate any time of your choosing between 12 December and 30 September 2021.  Walk on your own, with the dog, with friends, take your mum - your choices are endless as long as you walk within the current legal COVID restrictions at the time you go.  Please respect the tier zone travel advice too. The event will be entirely unsupported, so there are no refreshments provided and no marshals on the route.  Runners are very welcome to take part, but it is not a race - just a fun day out.

Entries open via SiEntries from 12 December 2020 until 30 September 2021

Start Time will be flexible but we recommend 8.30am and entrants can be confident they will complete the route in 8 hours.

Recommended start location is Scout Scar quarry car park, at the top of Underbarrow road (Grid Reference SD489 924 free parking) but there are other locations you could use if you choose - these will be marked on the route description.   

It will be £5 to enter and is for LDWA members only (an insurance requirement folks) , and you can link to the SiEntries page HERE. Entry fee provides you with our route description, GPX file and an emailed certificate afterwards.  You will be invited to log back onto SiEntries after the event to input your details of time taken.  A certificate will be prepared from this information.
