The ‘Bull-to-Bull’ is a 21 mile challenge across the tops of South Lakes ridge starting from the Black Bull Inn (Coniston) and ending in the Old John Bull Inn (Silecroft).

The route takes in all the major summits along the way: Old Man, Dow Crag, White Pike, Stickle Pike, Whitfell, Buckbarrow and Black Combe.

Anyone can attempt the route and submit a time, provided they have sufficient evidence (e.g. Strava trace).

The Bull to Bull Trophy is shared amongst those completing it each year.
