Starting and finishing at John Ruskin School in Coniston village (LA21 8EW), the 10km Coniston Trail Run, 15km Coniston Trail Race and 15km Coniston Trail Challenge follow circuits along well marked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways, taking in panoramic views of Lake Coniston and the surrounding peaks of the Old Man, Swirl How, Wetherlam and Dow Crags. Underfoot conditions are generally good for those used to off road running, although there is one short 200m section after approx 4km on the 15km routes which only agile mountain goats will be able to run!
A cracking atmosphere is guaranteed for both spectators and competitors, with live music, race commentary, food and drink all available at the start and finish. So, whether you're new to trail running, an experienced athlete, or simply looking for an unforgettable day out in Cumbria, a family-friendly, festival atmosphere and some amazing trail running awaits you!
