Club Statement: Buttermere Round

It is with regret that the club can announce that the Buttermere Round 34k race will not be taking place this year.

Over the years, turnout for this race has steadily decreased whilst requirements for race marshals and water stations have increased. Last year, we hosted 33 runners and required 10 volunteers to support them. Unfortunately this is no longer sustainable in our busy race calendar.

We know that those who do run the Buttermere Round are very fond of it and many use it as valuable marathon training. We will be running the race as an informal club run for local clubs, others who would like to join us can get in touch at

The dates of our remaining race fixtures will be posted on the website shortly.

Run fast,

Sam Stead
Club Secretary
Keswick AC
