The start is located halfway down Derwent Water and is accessed from the Keswick Mountain Festival events centre, Crow Park, by a scenic ride on one of the Keswick Launch Company’s boats. This is included in the entry price of the race.
Starting at Low Brandlehow, you will set off through beautiful woodland next to the shores of Derwent Water, once you’ve run through the Manesty Woods you’ll turn from South to North and take a short sharp climb up on to the flanks of Catbells for some excellent wide open trails.
This leads to the ‘Hawes End’ drinks station and then the flatter lands of Overside Woods, passing The Lingholm Estate on your right and taking forest trails until a short road section takes you through the village of Portinscale, across the suspension bridge and to the fields to the West of Keswick. An exciting and fast finish round the back of Crow Park will lead you into the Festival Site where your family and friends will be cheering you on to your own personal victory.
The course is a mixture of wide-open trails through amazing woodland, a little single track, a few short and sharp hills, some road and fields to finish. If you’re new to trail running then this is the course for you, being a short distance with a small amount of ascent.
