Lakeland50 (LL50) Challenge

On July 28th 2018, Richard Jackson will be taking on the LL50 Challenge, which is a 50 mile run/hike/walk through the Lake District.

The LL50 is regarded as one of the greatest ultra challenges in Europe and is not for the faint hearted.

The challenge is double the distance of a marathon, it’s on rough terrain and there’s approximately 3100m of ascent to deal with. The Lakeland 50 is a huge challenge, it requires commitment, drive and the ability to ‘just keep going’ when most folk would just ‘rather not’.

Richard decided that he would like to do this challenge for a worthwhile charitable cause, and has kindly chosen to support Tanya’s Courage Trust.

If anyone would like to sponsor Richard for this amazing challenge he is taking on, please go to his crowdfunding page linked below.

Good Luck Richard, we will be thinking of you and look forward to your report when it’s all finished.
