The Karrimor Great Trail Challenge takes place on Sunday 17 June 2012, with 10k, half marathon and marathon distances, starting and finishing in Fitz Park, Keswick.
The course is made up of a long lap, with a slightly shorter lap to accommodate the 10km trail. The half marathon course will consist of one long and one short lap, with the marathon covering two long and two short laps.
The multi terrain course begins flat along the old Keswick Railway track for about 2 miles, when the route then separates. The long lap turns right up toward Wescoe Farm and then onto Lonscale Farm, taking the runners to the highest point of 399m. The short lap climbs over the northern shoulder of Latrigg Fell to an ascent of 270m. The two laps then rejoin for a run down the Cumbria Way back to Fitz Park. See the route map for more information.
The marathon, half-marathon and 10km events will take place on the same day and will be set off in waves, with the first wave starting at approximately 10:00. A full timetable will be available closer to the time, keep checking here for further information.
