What level is an LTR Regular? To book onto our 'Regulars' you must be capable of running at a steady pace on tricky terrain for 2 hours or more. Unless you are a confident and frequent trail runner we please ask you to try our most accommodating 'Intro' run or one of our 'Tasters' first - we can then advise whether stepping up to one of our Regulars would be appropriate for you.
What's the route? Our stunning 42km route starts by heading out towards Applethwaite, we then pass Millbeck and into Dodd Wood - from there we'll briefly cover some beautiful trails by Lake Bassenthwaite before we take in a small road section near the sailing club at Dubwath. We'll then venture back onto trails along Wythop Woods as we head towards Thornthwaite. Gorgeous trails of Little Braithwaite are next up before we arrive in Portinscale on the outskirts of Keswick. The final section heads into Keswick's Great Wood, rewarding us with breathtaking views out over Derwent Water. We'll tackle one last incline near Castlerigg before arriving back at the Leisure Centre having completed a fabulous trail marathon..
