Hawkshead Trail Race & Challenge
Starting from Hawkshead Showground (postcode LA22 0NN), the 17km Hawkshead Trail Race and 17km Hawkshead Trail Challenge follow a circuit along well marked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways takes in panoramic views of Lake Windermere and the surrounding peaks of the Coniston Hills, the Langdales and most of the Lakeland fells. Underfoot conditions are generally good, for those used to off-road running. Check out the slide show of the course. The 17km Hawkshead Trail is split into TWO events – the Challenge, for less competitive runners, novice trail runners and those who want to take it easy and enjoy the views. The Challenge sets off at 13.00pm and you get an hour extra to complete the course. The Race sets off at 14.00pm and is for competitive runners, with winners prizes and a shorter time limit.
