Make sure to take in all the stunning vistas this route has in abundance. Now in its eighth year, Borrowdale Trail Runs are a classic on the trail race calendar. The courses are a trail runners dream, incorporating everything in terms of scenery and variation of terrain.
13km Route: This deviates off the main route at the south end of Derwent water and crosses the road into High Lodore woods. A testing section of single track ascends through the woods parallel to the famous climbing area of Shepherd's Crag. Follow the trail alongside the beck past spectacular waterfalls and pools to re-join the main route at Ashness Wood.
5km Route: Lakeshore Route: This is a fantastic route if you are new to trail running. Starting and finishing at Crow Park, the route winds past Friar's Crag "Keswick's best view" following the lakeshore trails to Calfclose Bay and the Centenary Stone. Enjoy the spectacular views down into the Borrowdale Valley. Cross the shingle beach and loop back to re-join the outward loop at Ings Wood. The terrain is predominantly easy gravel trails with some gentle inclines.
