Race Description

Showcasing breath-taking Lakeland views of Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite on course, participants will take in the old Keswick railway line, River Greta and the challenging heights of Latrigg Fell over 11km and 22km distances.

From the organisers of the Bupa Great North Run, the event has grown into one of the biggest of its kind in the North of England since its inaugural staging in 2012, with running and walking events taking place throughout the day.

For the runners, there is more at stake than a personal best, with the introduction of the King of the Mountain and Demon Descent. Timing mats will be placed on the off-road course recording how long it takes for runners to ascend Latrigg Fell and descend Cumbria Way to the finish line. The fastest male and female across both distances will be crowned the King of the Mountain and the Demon Descender.

As well as the mass participation event, spectators can watch an elite race, with senior and junior athletes from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland competing in the Home Countries International team competition.
