Wansfell Trail Race

Date & Location

Ambleside, Lake District

Organiser’s Description

Starting at Rothay Park in Ambleside, this 10k mountain run features leg and lung burning ascents and descents, including two visits to the summit of Wansfell Pike, and a descent which is described as one of the best in the Lakes. If you have the skills the race can be won or lost on this technical, but amazingly flowing and fun part of the course. On reaching the 'Kiln' at the bottom you will be treated to a typical wooden Lakeland style to cross, a good one for crampy legs! This is a marked course, with a mix of road, trails and single track, open fell and woodland trails.
