Karrimor Great Trail Challenge

A new trail running event has been announced for the Lake District by the organisers of the Bupa Great North Run and British Gas Great North Swim. The Karrimor Great Trail Challenge will take place on Sunday 17th June 2012 with 10k, half marathon and marathon distances all setting off from Keswick 10am. The 10km route covers one short lap, which heads out flat along the old Keswick Railway track for about 2 miles, climbs over the northern shoulder of Latrigg Fell, before making its way back down Cumbria Way to the finish. The half marathon consists of one lap of the short course and one lap of the long course. From the old Keswick Railway track, the long lap turns right up toward Wescoe Farm and onto Lonscale Farm, taking the runners to the highest point of 399m. It then makes its way back down Cumbria Way to the finish. The marathon covers two laps of the long course and two laps of the short course. Entry fee includes a medal, Karrimor Great Trail Challenge t-shirt and finisher’s pack. Find out more and enter at
