Before attempting the Lakeland Way Ultra, please note the following:
“A mile or so from Ravenglass a low-tide window is required to be able to cross the River Esk at the Eskmeals Viaduct. This running version of the Lakeland Way has been developed from the walking version, however, it is in reverse (anti-clockwise) of the latter so that the river crossing is at the beginning. This will help in generating fast times.”
