"Combining two mountain summits both over 600 metres with a spectacular journey inside Fleetwith Pike. You will race along tunnels and inclines, covering over a kilometre underground through Honister mines.

Lauren Beaty from Honister Slate Mine said: " Honisterfest is back for 2022 after a 2 year hiatus and we can’t wait to see everyone together dancing the night away to great music, after the past few years bringing everyone back to let their hair down in the heart of the mountains and see the runners once again take on the challenge of running through the mines is something we are all eagerly counting down too.

"We feel very lucky to be the home of the highest festival in the UK, with fantastic support from local people and businesses we expect this year to be a huge success and continue to grow year on year."
