  Entries for the 2021 Trial

Entries for the 2021 La Sportiva Lake District Mountain Trial opened on 16th April 2021. Please see the Entry page. The venue will be Loweswater Village Hall. This year the courses are being planned by Pete Nelson. The controller is Mark Seddon. Entries close on 30th August.

  John Nettleton

We are sad to report the death of Honorary Vice President John Nettleton MBE at the age of 92. John competed in some of the first Mountain Trials in the 1950s, finishing 4th in the 1954 trial. He helped to compile the Fifty Years Running booklet about the first 50 years of the Trial and wrote the introduction. John became a director of Brockhole Outdoor Centre. He was still actively participating in Parkruns until very recently.

  2020 AGM cancelled

The 2020 AGM of LDMTA has been cancelled. The President, Officers and Committee have all agreed to continue in post and serve for a further year. All Members of the Association during the year ending 31st August 2020 will have their membership extended free of charge for a further year. They will all be notified of the cancellation of the AGM together with a statement of the Association's financial position and an invitation to submit any desired resolution for consideration at a Special General Meeting when current restrictions are lifted or deferred for consideration at the 2021 AGM.
The Committee can be found here.
Subject to the lifting of the current pandemic restrictions, the 2021 Trial will take place in the Western Lakes area on Sunday 12th September 2021. Andrew Bradley will be the organiser with Pete Nelson planning courses and Mark Seddon controlling.

  2020 Mountain Trial

The 2020 Mountain Trial has been cancelled. The decision to cancel has been made in view of uncertainties over Government restrictions, insurance cover, the granting of land use permissions and the goodwill of the local community. Hopefully it will be possible to stage next year's trial - if so the date will be Sunday 12th September 2021.
