Win entry to Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon

Enter our competition to win a pairs entry to the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon as part of the Alpkit team


Win a place for you and your running partner to join the Alpkit team in the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon on the 30th June – 1st July.

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon is a 2-day mountain navigation competition (or race) held annually in the Lake District. Now in its 40th year, it’s a classic event on the fell running calendar.

Taking place in the summertime, with multiple courses at varying difficult levels on offer, SLMM makes the ideal mountain marathon for fresh first timers and experienced fell runners alike. The AK team includes representatives from both camps, and we’d love two more people to join us to compete in either the Harter Fell or Wansfell class. These classes are ideal for first timer mountain marathoners as no previous mountain marathon experience is required – just good hill and navigational skills.

Not only will the competition winners get a pairs entry into either the Bedafell or Wansfell class, but you’ll win £500 worth of AK vouchers between you to get yourselves kitted out for the event. Plus (as if that wasn't enough), you'll also be an honorary member of team Alpkit! This means that you'll be added to our SLMM AK Team profile page (coming soon) and we'll supply you with a pre-booked drink at the over night stop. We'll share all our insider training tips with you, give you all the gear advice you could ask for and you'll even be able to write your very own Daring Deed after the event to be published live on the Alpkit website!

To enter, simply tell us why you and your partner want to join us at the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon in the box below. Final submission will be accepted on the 4th June, and winners announced shortly after. 

Please make sure that you are available for the race dates of 30th June - 1st July!
