Hardened club runners used to knock out 100 miles in a week. Now an ever increasing number of runners want to try and run 100 miles in a single weekend. On Friday 27th July the Lakeland 100 2012 will get underway. If you want to see what this is all about why not pop into our sister shop Lakes Climber and Runner in Ambleside (3-4 Cheapside) and go into Bilbo’s Cafe upstairs for a cuppa. As usual Lakes Runner will be the 85 mile checkpoint on the 100 miler with runners starting to come through at about 3 pm on the Saturday. There is also a 50 miler which is the second half of the 100. Runners start at noon on the Saturday so they will start coming past Lakes Runner early evening. They will continue on for most of the night. All encouragement is welcome.
