Enter Lakeland 50 & 100

Before entering, please read all of the information, terms and conditions below.

TO ENTER The Montane Lakeland 50 & 100 GO HERE – EVENT FULL FOR 2020

The 2020 Montane Lakeland 50 & 100 general entries will open and be available at 9am on Sunday September 1st. There will be 1400 general places available, specifically as 900 places for the 50 miles event and 500 places for the 100 miles events.

For the first time, 2020 entries will be based on a ballot system. Competitors will have 3 hours to register their interest, between 9am and 12 noon. IMPORTANT – There is no benefit in registering early. Whether you register at 9:00am or 11:59am, your chance of being successful in the ballot will not change.

A further 350 ‘charity’ places are available for the event. If you enter as a ‘charity entrant’ you are entering the same event under the same terms, but you will be charged the normal entry fee plus £100 charity donation at time of entry. Once you raise £100 (for our charity) the additional £100 paid at entry will be refunded. Please read details further down this page for more understanding of charity entry fees.

When you register between 9am and 12 noon on Sunday September 1st, you will be asked ‘if you are not accepted via the ballot would you like a charity place?’. Your answer to this question does not impact upon your chances of being successful in the ballot. However, if you answer ‘yes’ and you are NOT successful in the ballot, you will then be offered a charity place.

IMPORTANT – If more than 350 people are NOT successful in the ballot and have requested charity places, those charity places will also be allocated on a ballot basis.

Applications are only available ‘online’, there are no paper entries accepted for this event. To place an entry into either event you must have a reliable email address to which all pre-race information can be sent. No information is sent out in the post prior to the event. All online payments are safe and secure, Lakeland 50 & 100 organisers do not store any of your credit card details during the payment process.

What will I need?

  1. You’ll need an SI account number, register with SIentries.co.uk.
  2. If you’ve done the Lakeland 50 & 100 before, you’ll be asked which years and your times for completion, so have those to hand (dating back 12 years).
  3. If you haven’t done the Lakeland 50 & 100 before, you’ll be asked what you have done as qualifying experience. Read further down this page for more information, if you do not supply the required info, your entry will not be accepted.

When will I know?

All those who entered the ballot will be notified on Tuesday September 3rd, at approximately 5pm. You will receive an email saying that you ‘have’ or ‘have not’ been accepted. You have 24 hours to then pay for your place in the event, if you do not pay, at 5pm Wednesday your entry will be offered to another competitor, who will then have 24 hours to pay.  This will continue until the event is full.

Once the event is completely full, those people who were not successful, but requested a charity place will then be emailed to confirm if they were successful in gaining a charity place. The same will apply, if you do not accept the charity place within 24 hours, it will roll down.

When will we know about charity places?

We can’t give you a specific day for charity places, but will keep you informed on our Facebook group. The reason for this, is that 100 people may not accept / pay for their general entry at 5pm Tuesday and these will be reallocated to other people on the list (which might be you!). We don’t want you to accept a charity place, when you may well receive a general entry in the roll down. Once the general entries are all taken, we’ll then begin the charity entry allocation.

What do you get for your entry fee?
