The OFFICIAL Lakes Sky Ultra 2017 film. The conditions were epic, the runners were hardcore, Pinnacle Ridge was shortened by the weather and the runners took it all. Entries are open for 2018!
Last weekend saw the 50th Event of the OMM, the Original Mountain Marathon. Started back in 1968 by Gerry Charnley.

Theo from #LoveTrailsFestival and #LittleBigAdventures came to the Lakes for some investigating and fun so we had a quick mission around the #Helvellyn Edges #StridingEdge #SwirralEdge
A little history about the Lakes Sky Ultra, its conception, its design, its heart and its soul. Charlie talks about it all in this short clip produced by Steve Ashworth, AKA Movie It.
The Lakes Sky Ultra was certainly epic this year with cloud to 300m at times and as thick as old school lumpy custard. The runners, marshals and organising team were certainly tested to the limit by we all had a ball, so sit back, get a cup of tea and enjoy this little edit put together by the guys at MovieIt
With an extremely difficult weekend of weather it took a cool and calm team to deliver the KMF 2017 events this year, here's the race directors report from Charlie to update you on the weekends activities.
Mark Lamb (Team Mountain Fuel) sets a course record for the Keswick Mountain Festival Salomon Running 5km distance this weekend after winning the Latrigg Fell Race 2 evenings before! The new course allowed the runners to concentrate on just running, as we removed the road crossings from the previous years race and designed a new course. Everyone seemed extremely happy and Mark ran a great time to claim his second victory of the festival's foot races. Of course we can't wait for next year now.... bring it on! Thanks to Mountain Fuel for the film work.
Ricky Lightfoot takes the 2016 KMF Salomon Trail Race record.
