The gently rolling trails around Cartmel offer lovely views over Morecambe Bay and the harder your run, the more Sticky Toffee Pudding you can eat afterwards.

The trails are along waymarked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways, giving panoramic views of both Morecambe Bay and the surrounding peaks. Underfoot conditions are variable with a bit of everything - gravel tracks, muddy lanes and the odd puddle for good measure. There are some good fast sections, but it can be very sticky in places, especially if wet!

A carnival 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 the Lake District, a family-friendly, festival atmosphere and some amazing trail running awaits you!
