Ascend Events is a small family run race organiser with the aim of using our experience in putting on events and passion for endurance events, the great outdoors & the Lake District to put on great value, fun & friendly endurance events on some popular long distance trails in the Cumbria fells.
We are taking some popular long distance walking routes that have fallen in to disuse as events and relaunching them. All our events will be set on tough, challenging, technical routes and will require map reading and navigational skills. But we will provide timing, comprehensive route description, a huge selection of food enroute, professional photography provided by Sport Sunday, a hot meal included after the race and a medal for all finishers. We are planning on organising recce days if there is the demand for them.
We want our events to be open to participants of all levels, walkers & runners both are not only catered for but are very welcome on all our events.
We will be donating 10% of all profits generated from our first event to The Cumbria Flood Appeal.
Launched by The Cumbria Community Foundation it is raising funds to support the individuals and communities devasted by the flooding in December.
