La Sportiva Grand Tour of Skiddaw
The Grand Tour of Skiddaw is a 44 mile race starting and finishing in Dalston, Cumbria. It takes place on Northern Lake District trails, with the climb up Skiddaw being around halfway through the route. It contains 7136 feet of ascent. Around 300 runners will be aiming to complete the route on Saturday, and the race is popular with our 10 runner reviewers. If you have run this race, what makes it stand out from other Lake District events?

Good luck if you are taking part.

RE:La Sportiva Grand Tour of Skiddaw
The full results have not yet been published, but we know that both course records were broken on Saturday. Andy Swift set a new male CR of 6:35:40, and Sabrina Verjee proved that she had recovered from her epic Lakeland 100 result by setting a new female CR of 8:07:00 - 7 minutes faster than her own previous record.
