2021 International Mountain Running U18 Cup

Unfortunately we were unable to host this event in 2020 due to the pandemic, however, all the hard work has not gone to waste as we are delighted the WMRA have kindly allowed Ambleside to host this event in 2021.

So we look forward to welcoming teams to the Lake District for the postponed 15th WMRA International U18 Mountain Running Cup on Saturday 24th July 2021.

The programme will be slightly different to planned 2020 event, this website will be updated as arrangements are made, however we expect the basic programme to follow as below.

Thank you, and see you in 2021 for some great racing.
