CaretLeft
What will the temperature be like for Mountain Trails: Running the Lake District?
You can expect daily temperatures to sit on average of 20 degrees C, however being Britain there is every chance of a hot spell (25 degrees C) or a colder spell (sub-18 degrees C). This also being the Lake District you should prepare for the high chance of rain and wind, as well as bright sunshine. In the mountains it is not unusual to experience four-seasons in one-day.

This sounds awesome, but I’m not a “runner” I run 10km in about 1hr on flat ground haha. I love the sound of this but feel it might be to much with experienced runners etc. I’m easing money for charity that month 100 miles in August and I’m thinking this would certainly gets the miles up and get me some fresh air? Do think worse case I can fast walk it and not hold up the group too much?? 😬

Hi Danny, Naturally pacing will vary between individuals, we'll travel at a relaxed, leisurely pace (very roughly 12 - 15min/mile running) with lots of stops along the way taking in the views. We have vehicle support with us throughout which will provide pop up aid-stations at intervals and transport for individuals if required. We have two guides on the trip (one from the front and back) throughout so everybody feels confident with the route being taken. It's more or less 4 - 5 hours per day on our feet traveling from point to point, it's not constant jogging but includes stops to visit local cultural sites, wild swimming, hermit caves, crossing mountain passes etc.

Hello - I was wondering what pace you expect people to run, fitness level AND if my husband and I book - will we get our own room in the pubs? Thinking about this for my birthday. Thanks 😊
