Ascend Events is a small, grass roots race organiser. We're delighted that we've achieved our aim of sharing our passion for endurance events, the great outdoors and the Lake District with others. We are proud that our events consistently enable participants to do more than they had before.
We've been organising our great value, fun and friendly events for a few years now, and it's gone far faster than we can run! Our original challenges now sell out, and our newer events are gaining in popularity so we might extend our calendar further.
We took some popular long distance walking routes that had fallen in to disuse and relaunched them. They're tough. They're challenging. They're technical. We don't mark the routes (much) so map reading and navigational skills are required. But self-sufficiency just adds to the sense of achievement when you finish.
We do provide timing, comprehensive route description and a proper selection of food. We give all the support needed to surpass your own expectations and complete our events and have the best time doing it. Then at the end we provide a proper hot meal and medal for all finishers.
We want our events to be accessible to participants of all levels. Walkers and runners are both not only accepted but very welcome at all our events.
We take pride in giving everyone the same level of support throughout the day. Whether you finish fastest, are mid-pack or make the most of your day in the fells you'll always get the same choice of food and friendly support all day. If you have any concerns about your abilities send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we try to alleviate any doubts.
