The challenging course takes you around Derwentwater with an extra loop into the Newlands valley.The race was set up by Keswick Rugby Club in order to raise funds for the club and the youth coaching program.

The half marathon is one of the events that help to fund this coaching program so your support is greatly appreciated.Come and take part in this very popular annual event.
