The 25km Trail race is perfect for trail runners with a bit of experience and very experienced runners who want to blast the course and set a hard to beat record. Taking in some of Borrowdale's finest trails and views, the course is a mixture of wide open trails, steady and tough ascents, single track through woodland and open valleys, and a little bit of road thrown in for good measure. You will be blown away by the wide open mountain vistas and bluebell woodland trails, hidden valleys & fast lowland running. The route then meets up with the 10k & you follow the same fast & exciting finish past Portinscale, the fields & into Crow Park for the big finish!
£28 per adult

I've worked for the National Trust since 2002 and I moved up to the Lake District to take up a job in Buttermere and Ennerdale in 2008.
I'd always enjoyed fellwalking holidays but what's really struck me since I came to the Lakes are the amazing stories buried beneath the surface of the landscape.
I feel privileged to work alongside our knowledgable rangers. Whenever I go out on the hills with one of them I always learn something about the history, the wildlife, the archaeology, the geology. I think of it like getting beneath the skin - there's this awe-inspiring landscape with this incredible cultural depth beneath it. I'm certainly never bored!
