Trail: TR AprMay 2016 Keswick (0)
Contributor: markroberts Activity Type: Trail Running Difficulty: Average Distance: 6.108 mi (9.83 km)
Description: Start at the home of the Keswick Mountain Festival, Crow Park, or just outside the Theatre by the Lake and take an adjusted version of the 50km Ultra race route, past the KMF camping fields to ascend to the summit of Walla Crag. You'll be blown away by the outstanding views of Borrowdale Valley from this high point and enjoy the soft trails over the Lakeland moorland. Traverse above Falcon Crags and descend technical ground to pay your running respects to a Lakeland running legend, Bob Graham, at his memorial next to famous Ashness Bridge. Now, follow technical and rocky single track under Falcon Crag back to the shores of Derwent Water and use the last of your leg strength to blast along the second half of the all-new Kesick Mountain Festival 5k race route. To shorten the run to 6k with 210m ascent, turn right after Castlerigg, through Great Wood.
