The Course:

Start at the Stickle Barn, head up towards Stickle Tarn and turn left and then left again to come back into the 'main NT carpark', run through here and then pick up the Cumbria Way to join the 10km route at Side House. A mildly technical trail now leads you towards Baysbrown Campsite, but turn left over the 'big bridge' and follow the marked trails to a very small road section (parents must take care with kids here; marshals will be present on the road section) and then pick up the well prepared trail back to Stickle Barn, where you will be directed to re-run the first loop around the pub, before coming back into the finish at the west side of the Octoberfest activities.
