The Course
As England’s only true mountain forest, hills are unavoidable on this 5 mile course. If you take on the challenge of Whinlatter Forest, you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with stunning views.  You may even catch sight of a red squirrel, roe deer or even an osprey!

10 Mile runners will complete two laps and you can view the course map here.

First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
