A beautiful, challenging marathon course set in England’s most spectacular mountain scenery. The Langdale Marathon has a reputation as the toughest road marathon in the UK. Taking in two laps of the Half Marathon course and reaching gradients of 1:3, this stunning marathon attracts both seasoned runners and a large number people looking for their next challenge.

Hosted in the heart of the Lake District the runners follow an anti-clockwise course from Great Langdale to Little Langdale and on to the picturesque hamlets of Skelwith Bridge and Chapel Stile. Climbing up to Blea Tarn (twice!) and Foulstep (twice!) the course is recognised as the toughest road marathon in UK. However, the stunning mountain scenery will surely take your mind off the effort.
