The Lakeland Trails are a well established company that offer trail runs in and around the Lake District National Park. The Lakeland Trails Races, and have good amount of loyal followers that race every race they put on. This is the sixth race of the 2013 series. There are 3 Lakeland Trails races on the day, the first race will be the 10km run around a flatish route that sees the runners finishing with a final run in along the shores of Lake Coniston. This race is ideal for those starting out in trail running.
The second start will be the Lakeland Trails Challenge, this is a much tougher 15km route than the 10km run, not just because it is a further 5 kms but the fact that the Lakeland Trails route heads into the foothills of ‘The Old Man of Coniston’. Don’t worry you don’t summit the mountain but the ascent up to the old copper mines is enough to get the fittest runners out of breath. Once climbed the far reaching views are fantastic and worth the discomfort felt from climb. The trails are well marked out and marshalled, safety cover is also provided but rarely needed.
The third race of the day is the Lakeland Trails race, this follows the same route as the challenge but usually attracts the more serious runners and club runners.
