The 20 Barriers follows a scenic route of just over 5 miles on the field paths, trails and canal towpath in the countryside to the south of Carnforth ‘Gateway to the Lake District’.
The race gets its name from the number of stiles and other field boundaries crossed en route but none of the ‘20 barriers’ should present any unusual hazards or difficulties.Trail or studded shoes advised.
Now that the Lundsfield track has been closed off to the public the race will find it's way back to Carnforth via Thwaite End Bridge number 127. See race map on the website.
Held under FRA rules and competitors must be 16 or over on day of race.
£5 on the night.
Part of each entry fee goes to Air Ambulance and Manna House,Kendal
Registration closes at 6.45 pm so that the race can start on time at 7pm sharp.
This is a no frills race with prizes for the first 3 men and first 3 women as they cross the finish line and a full set of results published a day or two afterwards.
