Brathay Hall, B5286, Clappersgate, Ambleside LA22 0HR, UK
Sun 22nd May 2022
This will be a stunning marathon route, taking one large, undulating lap of Lake Windermere, passing Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.
Over half the course is run on partially traffic-free roads or roads with a dedicated running lane.
The marathon will start from Brathay Hall and head anti-clockwise towards Hawkshead where you'll run through the historic and picturesque village with whitewashed houses, rchaways and alleyways, courtyards and squares. The section of the course in Hawkshead will be pedestrianised and with a lot of support from spectators.
At the 7 mile mark, you'll reach the 'Devil's Gallop' where you'll have to tackle a 200ft climb over half a mile but will be rewarded with a downhill respite towards Newby Bridge. Runners will cross the River Leven in Newby Bridge and be greeted with a cheering from spectators at The Swan Hotel.
Bowness-on-Windermere will provide some excellent scenery, with Bowness Pier right on the water of Lake Windermere. Always a popular destination, there's sure to be spectators with loud support and encouragement.
Heading towards the finish at Brathay, there'll be stunning views towards the Langdale Pikes at Low Wood Bay, only 2 miles to the finish.
