Sunday 17 May 10am, 11am & 12noon
The course is a mixture of wide open trails, some single track, a few easy hills with some road and fields to finish. If you're new to trail running then this is the course for you, being a short distance with a small level of ascent. Expect amazing running in some of the Lake District's best running country along the shores of Derwent Water and under the fell side of Catbells.
£25 per adult. Choose a start time of 10am, 11am or 12noon
You will be taking a ferry sailing to the start of the 10km route on the west side of Derwent Water. Sit back and take in the spectacular views of the surrounding fells before the start of the race! There are three different start times so you will need to choose your ferry sailing time when booking your race.

I've worked for the National Trust since 2002 and I moved up to the Lake District to take up a job in Buttermere and Ennerdale in 2008.
I'd always enjoyed fellwalking holidays but what's really struck me since I came to the Lakes are the amazing stories buried beneath the surface of the landscape.
I feel privileged to work alongside our knowledgable rangers. Whenever I go out on the hills with one of them I always learn something about the history, the wildlife, the archaeology, the geology. I think of it like getting beneath the skin - there's this awe-inspiring landscape with this incredible cultural depth beneath it. I'm certainly never bored!
