Information about your upcoming events in 2021

As one of the minority of small, local businesses that consistenly falls under the government's radar when support for business is announced, we're grateful for yours!

In the Autumn of 2020, we safely held 3 covid-secure events, hosting up to 800 people each day. Runners loved taking part and the overwhelming feedback was that the events were extremely well-organised and safe. You can look forward to taking part in 2021 with the re-assurance that the steps we took last year will be reviewed and adapted based on the current guidance and restrictions to ensure you have the most enjoyable day possible whilst keeping you, our crew & volunteers and locals safe at the same time.

We'll have our famously-friendly volunteer marshals out on the marked course and the views on some of the finest trails in the Lake District National Park will be amazing (weather-dependent!).

Back in the event village, our amazing Crew will be on hand to get you off the line on time. Our friends from inov-8 and Pete Bland Sports will be offering the latest kit and advice & our caterers will be serving delicious food and coffee.

Covid start

Depending on the date of your event, some of the measures we might take include:

  • Sending out race numbers in advance
  • Requesting runners to take free lateral flow tests before attending
  • Waved starts, setting you off in groups of 6 at a fixed start time
  • Getting you to sanitise your hands and wear a mask (at the start and finish only)
  • Separate start and finish lines to reduce gathering
  • No water stations - please be self-sufficient
  • Adapting routes to avoid sensitive areas
  • A re-configured marquee with a one-way system for collecting t-shirts

Please play your part by checking the information on your account is correct when we ask you to (see below for how to do that).

Please get in touch if there's anything else you need to know and see you on the Trails again soon!
