Set in the beautiful South Lake district, Holker Hall provides the centre of what will be amazing routes around this stunning peninsula. Taking in both coastal views and the beautiful fells synonymous with the Lakes, you’ll have the chance to explore areas within the estate that aren’t open to public. Take on a new challenge, test your trail running with a hill climb, or hone your gravel bike skills!

All mini runs will take place within the Holker Hall grounds so you don’t need to worry about little ones leaving the site.
