Every year on the third Saturday in November, the people of Ambleside parade through the town at dusk, carrying hundreds of paper lanterns. Young and old turn out to witness this spectacular procession, as traffic is halted and Christmas street lights throughout the town centre are switched on as if by magic by Santa Claus. Then there are FIREWORKS . . .

Not just a race, but an occasion. Voted the most scenic marathon by the readers of Running World it’s bigger, better and as beautiful as ever. Finish this breathtakingly beautiful course, amidst a carnival atmosphere, in the grounds of Brathay Hall with its stunning views over England’s largest lake. “Spectacular - beautiful scenery, excellent organisation, well-spaced refreshment stations, very friendly atmosphere - I can't fault anything about this race!" The 26.2 anti-clockwise lap around Lake Windermere takes in the honey-pot sites of Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside. Over half the course is run on partially traffic-free roads or roads with a dedicated running lane. Runners say it’s very well organised, the marshals are very friendly, it has outstanding local support and, to top it all, you will get to see the inspirational men and women who will be completing the final marathon of their 10in10.
