10km Valley Route | 250m of ascent | 17 October 2020 | Location: Stickle Barn | £22.50

A beautiful, mildly technical 10km route in Great Langdale, based out of the National Trusts Stickle Barn, which is delivered during the National Trusts awesome Octoberfest.

We are delighted to be offering this unique and beautiful 10km trail run in partnership with the National Trust.

Entries opening very soon | Price: £22.50 | Location: Stickle Barn | Distance: 10km

The Course:

Start in the centre of Great Langdale at the Stickle Barn and head immediately uphill out of the back of the pub, turn swiftly left and ascend the very technical path and then run the wonderfully technical trail under Far Eastern Raven, then Far Raven and eventually Raven Crag dropping from here to the Old Dungeon Ghyll pub. From here run up Mickleden being blown away by the awesome views and turn ‘hard’ left at the end of the wall to cross the Great Langdale Beck and head back on rough but runnable trails to Stool End Farm.

Continuing now on tarmac surfaces you take the private road to the junction to turn right and then left into the Great Langdale Campsite. A quick run in the campsite turns you right up through a block of woods to turn left as you leave them and re-join the Cumbria Way. Follow Lakeland trails towards Baysbrown Campsite but turn 'hard' left and over the big bridge for another crossing of the 'Beck'.

Good prepared trails bring you back to the finish at the Stickle Barn.

Clothing and Equipment:

This is a valley based 10km trail race, therefore we are not enforcing runners to carry any clothing with them, apart from what they are wearing.

However; a word of caution, the weather in Great Langdale can be pretty vicious and we do advise to bring a waterproof with you to use, if the conditions should dictate. We also advise the use of 'trail' or 'fell' shoes, as the course is over rough and varied terrain and slips and trips are likely to happen.

Entry requirements

You must be at least 15 years old as of 'the date of the race' to enter Langdale Trail Race. If you are under 18, you will need to provide the written consent of a parent/guardian at the time of entry.

Entries are via SI Entries and are not vetted: however, Langdale Trail Race is a difficult 10k and we expect you to come prepared. You will be tackling tough and technical terrain at points, including 250m ascent/descent.

By entering the race, you are attesting your competence to complete the course.

Any competitor found to have deliberately misled the Race Director in this respect will be expelled from the race and all future associated races.
