Lowther Trail Run
August 13, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm£10 – £12.50
This scenic route takes the runner across Askham Fell and the Lowther Valley. It is a fully marked 13 mile route with about 1400ft of ascent. Although there are a few short but flattish sections on rough ground, we think that trail shoes will be more suitable than fell shoes and the fastest runners could consider wearing trainers. It depends on the conditions underfoot. You must come to the event equipped with a lightweight raintop which we will ask you to carry if the weather is wet. There are drinks at 2 points on the route. The route has about 3 miles of tarmac and the rest is mostly open country with grassy and gravel tracks, also about two miles crossing rough pasture.
