The original Buttermere Horseshoe Fell Race (possibly back in 2013). This is by no means definitive as it's been difficult to find any information on this one... it looks like a very tough one.


The race starts and finishes by the Loweswater village hall, GR 140210

Kit Requirements:

Full kit required + experience required, ie not one for the novice.
