We are the official charity for Keswick Mountain Festival in 2015. Support our conservation work around Derwent Water by taking part in this event and making a donation.
Saturday 16 May 2015, 10am
The short triathlon includes a 400m swim in Derwent Water, 20km cycle around Derwent Water and a 5km trail run. This is a newly designed run for 2015 which offers more trail than road. The distances are perfect if you're a beginner looking for your first triathlon or if you fancy a quick sprint triathlon to start the season. With individual and relay team entries you can do it alone, with friends or in a team.
£42 per adult, £65 per relay

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!
