About the LAW100
Lady Anne Clifford was the last member of one of England’s great medieval dynasties, and became something of a legend in her own lifetime. Lady Anne was a Noblewoman and restorer of castles, and fought a 40-year battle for her right to inherit her father’s estates. Lady Anne devoted herself to restoring and enhancing the castles and churches on her lands, stretching from Skipton to Penrith.
Lady Anne’s Way, starts at the magnificent Skipton Castle, and travels up wonderful Wharfedale in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, over into Wensleydale and then heads West over and into in to Cumbria and the hidden delights of the Upper Eden Valley.
why the LAW100?
Lady Anne’s journey is in some ways a forerunner of Due North’s founder, Mel’s recent move from Skipton to Penrith. Similarly, Joe of NAV4 Adventure worked in The Dales, and vividly remembers Lady Anne’s Way featuring in part of his very soggy Mountain Leader assessment many years ago.
what is involved?
LAW100 will be available in two varieties: either as a non-stop overnight 100 miler or a two day stage race, with an overnight at Garsdale. We’ll accommodate you in our ‘EVENT VILLAGE’* details to be confirmed in due course.
The way is route marked, and follows established rights of way. A GPX file will be available, as will route notes and maps. An excellent guide book is readily available.
There will be four or five main checkpoints, plus intermediate checkpoints with water and ‘TLC’. If you’ve done any of Joe or Mel’s events you will be aware of the excellent checkpoint food and all round quality. Naturally, overnight baggage will be transported for the two-day participants, and a drop bag transfer for non-stop racers.
You will carry a tracker provided by our friends at Open Tracking with their excellent back-up aiding our safety systems.
NAV4 / Due North adopt an eco-approach and the Settle-Carlisle railway line will help with return transport and with recce prep runs. Further details, including recce runs and route details will be updated in due course.
Entries will be limited, and open on 1st February.
Cost is £190 Non-stop or £240 for the two-day package.
