Bringing the International Youth Cup to Ambleside in 2021.

The International Youth Cup has been a stepping stone for under 18 fell and mountain runners to race internationally since 2006. Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, Robbie Simpson, Marc Scott and many others have started their international racing careers at this event. Last year in Lanzada, Italy, England’s boys’ team won the event with Rossendale’s Matty Mackay winning the individual title and Ilkley’s Euan Brennan second.

It has never yet been hosted in England.
