In 1959 Frank Davies opened the doors to the first outdoor equipment shop in Ambleside, he was told that it would never work. Fast forward 60 years and Brathay are very proud to help The Climbers Shop celebrate their Diamond Anniversary by bringing you the Ambleside Trail 60 event; a 60km trail run through some of the most spectacular scenery the Lake District has to offer.

Ambleside Trail 60 route

Starting from Rothay Park, the Ambleside Trail 60 is a 60km loop made up of some iconic Lake District running. From the park, participants will make their way up and over Loughrigg towards Skelwith Bridge, Tarn Hows and from there onwards towards Coniston. Before reaching Coniston, the route climbs above Coniston Coppermine and toward Lad Stones. Continuing onward, the route makes its way to Little Langdale and after a short but punchy climb reaches Blea Tarn. Runners then make their way up Stake Pass and then follow the Langstrath Beck before climbing back up Lining Crag, the biggest climb on the course. Runners descend into Grasmere and slowly wind their way back toward Ambleside.
