DaffyDo – Daffodil Run or Walk
March 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm£20
The fondly named ‘DaffyDo’ originated from the floods of Storm Desmond in 2015. Pooley Bridge was washed away and the village cut in half for six months. We organised a run or walk from Pooley to highlight the issue and to celebrate the wonderful trails and scenery around Pooley Bridge.
The route goes from Pooley, up towards Askham Fell and takes in the recently established Ullswater Way towards Howtown. The route passes the impressive ‘The Cockpit’ stone circle and the newly installed ‘Wainwright Sitting Stone’. The views along the Lake are stunning and the trails sweep you to Hallin Fell, the magnificent ‘little fell’ situated halfway along Ullswater.
The beauty of The Daffodil Run is that you can run or walk as much or as little as you wish. The full route, to Hallin fell and back is 13miles, but being and out and back route you can turn around at Martindale Church and shorten the route accordingly. Alternatively, take ‘The Steamer’ back down Ullswater and join us for tea, coffee, soup and cake.
It’s the shortest and most relaxed event that we stage and it’s certainly not a race. Simply set off when you are ready (slower walkers early, faster folk later) with the common goal to have fun and enjoy the route.
