Brathay Windermere Marathon & Half Marathon

Date & Location

Ambleside, Cumbria

Organiser’s Description

Not just a race, but an occasion. Voted the most scenic marathon by the readers of Running World, for 2017 it’s bigger, better and as beautiful as ever. The anti-clockwise lap around Lake Windermere on partially closed roads, takes in the honey-pot sites of Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside, and you'll finish this breathtaking course amidst a carnival atmosphere in the grounds of Brathay Hall, with its stunning views over England’s largest lake. "Spectacular - beautiful scenery, excellent organisation, friendly atmosphere - I can't fault anything about this race!" Also brings the Brathay Half Marathon and junior races.
