Route information
Once again the event is based from Pooley Bridge, and both routes go clockwise around the Lake, so, The Cockpit, Howtown and Hallin Fell first. 
After Glenridding, you will have a choice of two routes. Either stay low around the lakeshore towards Aira Force and around Gowbarrow Fell, or take on the more challenging and higher level Glencoyne traverse to Dockray, Gowbarrow Summit and then meet up with the original route.
The high level route will not be 'open' in bad weather. All participants will follow the lower level 20mile route.
The route uses a variety of paths varying from wide tracks to narrow rocky paths with some small amounts of tarmac lane. A written route description will be available to all.
