Sadly but inevitably we have cancelled Spring in Lakeland 50 scheduled for 18th/19th April. All entrants will be informed by email through SiEntries . The good news is that we will be running the event on the same weekend next year, 17th/18th April. Entrants will have the option of carrying forward their entry to the new event date. Alternatively there is the option to donate the entry fee to charity. This will be to Cumbria Wildlife Trust to help fund their project in lovely Craggy Wood, which features on Loop 2 of the event. Finally there is an option to take a refund subject to a deduction for expenses.

I would like to thank all the marshals and helpers for all their hard work and dedication to helping all walkers , runners and walk runners to have a fantastic day.
At all checkpoints the marshals were excellent and cheery which added to the great banter between everybody .
This is a very special event which makes it very popular the route has a bit off everything and I thoroughly enjoyed
the hike and all the checkpoints. once again many thanks to all regards Jeff.
ps see you all next year.

That’s Lyth entries and waiting list are now closed. Looking forward to welcoming 350 or so walkers and runners on the 26th.

The entry list for Spring in Lakeland 50 on 18th/19th April is virtually full. A small waiting list will be opened so get your skates on if you are hoping to get an entry.

Nice to see that you've valued LDWA members first Tony. Members can't say they didn't get a chance to enter when you had the event available to members only for several weeks. I'm really looking forward to the event and there are a few of us travelling up with green T-Shirts!!

Our two events were opened up to non-members yesterday, since when we have received over 100 entries. If you plan to enter either or both don’t leave it too long.

Hi Jeff,
Although there is almost 3000 feet of climbing in Loop 1, there are no really steep climbs. The main one is over the Garburn Pass which is long and steady.
Checkpoint closing times have not been finalised but are likely to be based on a finishing time of 22 hours. That means a closing time of around 16.30 for the 18 miles of Loop 1, or 8 hours walking, although it probably won’t be enforced too tightly. Based on your Hundred times I would not have thought you would have too much of a problem keeping within the time limits for Loop 2 & 3.

Hi Tony
My partner is new to the LDWA and wanting to do the first loop but is not a strong climber.
Do you think it will be ok for a novice and if so my intentions is to walk the first loop then go
on to complete the other 2 loops will here be any cut off times for me if she takes a long time
on the first loop.
Many thanks Jeff
