Lakeland 100 Recce Day 3 – 3rd April (Buttermere to Dalemain)

Recce day 3 takes place from Buttermere to Dalemain and covers the 2nd quarter of the 100 course. The route is one of the easier sections with relatively good tracks and few aggressive climbs and descents. On Saturday 2nd April there will be guest talks at Crosthwaite Parish Room, Keswick, CA12 5NN. To see the exact location GO HERE. The Saturday evening talks will be based upon training and preparation for the 2015 Montane Lakeland 50 & 100

On Sunday the coach will pick up at 8:00am from Dalemain Estate near Pooley Bridge, please park your cars in the car park at Dalemain estate but use the far back section of the car park. To see the location GO HERE. The coach will then drop off at Buttermere Village Hall to start the run (60-75 minute drive), to see location GO HERE.

We advise that you stay in Keswick as this is the most convenient place for all activities, but please be aware that Dalemain is the only collection point for the coach, it will not collect from Keswick.

Checkpoints will be manned at Braithwaite, Blencathra and Dockray with water and basic refreshments, but please bring your own snacks and any other specific products required.

There will be a small change from the published route to take account of the damage to the bridges along the Old Railway Line. We will post more information about this nearer to the recce day.

You will need to print a road book from the competitor area, if you are using GPS download the track/route (there will not be the option to do this on Saturday evening or Sunday morning). You can also pre-mark a route map to help with navigation, there is a map link provided on the competitor area of the site. As with all recce days, full kit as per the Lakeland 100 kit list is compulsory for all participants.
