It's time to take on trails and go for that PB or simply enjoy getting around the route. When you purchase your place this year you'll be helping us support the crucial voluntary work of the Kendal Search and Mountain Rescue Team.
Take part in a rip-roaring trail run visiting the local landmarks used by the local running community. The route is pure trail running, strewn with natural obstacles (no haybales, no mud-baths, no obstacles required) just lots of great ascents, jaw dropping vistas, some hard packed and grassy trails and a great town centre finish.
The adidas TERREX Kendal Mountain Festival 10K Trail Run starts on closed roads climbing out of the town centre up Beast Banks. Its steep start utilising the same roads that the Tour of Britain cycle race finishes up. After 3km the route starts weaving along the limestone escarpment of Scout Scar with amazing views across Morecambe Bay and the Lyth Valley. The run along the escarpment is punctuated by crossing Underbarrow Road, where there will be a simple water station. The run continues towards Cunswick Scar before turning back across Kendal golf course and descending the steep streets and ginnels back into the centre of Kendal.
