Description

Type: Special Event - Guided Group Trail Running Weekend.
Date: Friday 12th, Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th May.
Level: Intermediate/Competent.
Location: Patterdale, the Lake District.
Loyalty: 60 points.

Taking place from Patterdale, the Lake District, we are excited to bring to fruition the first Love Trail Running Weekend. As you'd expect, a lot of thought and planning has gone into the whole weekend to ensure that all those who secure a place, get the absolute most from it. Due to its nature the weekend is aimed at and best suited to experienced & active trail runners but with an emphasis on a relaxed & social atmosphere out on the trails.

Itinery:

Friday:

Meet in the Patterdale Hotel bar around 5.30pm for a brief Q&A session. Around 6pm the first of the weekend's guided runs will leave the hotel. It will be approximately 7.5km in length with a healthy focus on enjoying the incredible scenery and simply getting to know each other. Once back at the hotel there will be plenty of time to freshen up ahead of the evening meal at 8pm.

Saturday:

After a hearty breakfast, the group will meet at 9.15am outside the hotel before a 20min walk into Glenridding ready to board the 9.45am 'Ullswater 'Steamer' (not included). This will take us the entire length of Ullswater stopping at the northern point of Pooley Bridge. From here starts an amazing day on the trails.

Stage 1 (21.2km's - Half-Marathon)

The route will start out on Dunmallard Hill, then towards Barton Park, it will then pass Auterstone Wood and Raven Crag before coming out at Howtown. From there the route will take in lower parts of Hallin Fell, offering stunning views out over Ullswater. We then head into the magnificent Hallinhag Wood. Next the route passes another wood off Birk Fell before arriving at Silver Crag. From there we take a bridle path on lower parts of Patterdale Common before running alongside Goldrill Beck that conveniently takes us back to the Patterdale Hotel.

SHORT STOP (packed lunch provided)

This will give all runners the opportunity to quickly freshen up and take some real food on, or they have the option to cut the day short and put their feet up. Those who are keen for more can get back out on a new trail for the next stage.

Stage 2 (11.8km)

The route will re-start with Stage 2 and cross Goldrill Beck, head up toward Patterdale Common, onto Rooking, travelling beneath Rake Crag, across Angle Tarn Beck and into Hartsop. We will then pass the serene Brotherswater and head towards Cora Crag, the route then takes us along a scenic track passing on the other side of Brotherswater, through Low Wood, up to How End, down to Bridgend and back to the Patterdale Hotel once again to complete stage 2.

This will give all runners the opportunity to quickly freshen up or to cut the day a little short and put their feet up. Those who are up for the challenge of completing our full route can get back out on a new trail for the 3rd and final stage.

Stage 3 (9.2km)

Stage 3 will head towards Glenridding, the route then takes in the stunning Waterfall Wood, up through Grisedale towards Eagle Crag, down through the Plantation Wood beneath Birkes Crag and onto Deepdale Common before finally finishing back at the Hotel.

Distance covered in the 3 Saturday stages:

1: 21.2km's (Half-Marathon)
1+2: 33.5 km's
1+2+3: 42.1 km's (An incredible Full trail marathon)

The evening meal on the Saturday will be served at 6.30pm and for those that still have a little energy left we'll have an inspirational film at 8pm.

Sunday:

After a good night's sleep and a relaxed breakfast the group will be given instructions about their 8km Adventure run. After an 11 o'clock checkout we'll head out for the 5th and final route. We're confident everyone will find this to be absolutely great fun. Once completed runners have the option of heading home or returning to the hotel to grab a hot drink, a bite to eat and recover.
