START OF RACE AT 11.30am

Start of race is at Portinscale (just beyond the footbridge). Approximately 20 minutes stroll to the start.  Please do not leave it until the last minute and follow the signs and marshall’s instructions.

 

WARNING – THE COURSE IS NOT CLOSED TO TRAFFIC.

Please be advised we cannot allow push chairs and wheel chairs to enter the race due to the steepness of the course.

A lead car will be in front of the lead runner. Every junction will be marshalled so please adhere to their directions. You must keep to the RIGHT, facing on coming traffic until Grange Bridge. Thereafter runners must keep to the LEFT. Bottled water is available at approximately 3, 6, 8 and 10.5 miles. Please do not forget that the event is run entirely by volunteers, so to help please put bottles in the bins provided or stock piles as appropriate for easy collection. It is important to minimise litter in the Lake District National Park. Please adhere to any advice from marshals on the route. Late starters should note that officials will not stay on station indefinitely. Any runner who has not reached Grange Bridge by 13:30h (8.5 miles) will be given a choice of a lift back to the club house in a vehicle or to complete the race unaided at their own risk.

Please remember marshals CANNOT stop or re-direct traffic. Particular attention should be taken at the two roundabouts nearing the end of the race (entering Keswick)
