Located in the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty this undulating approx 16 mile route is eminently runnable and is a perfect introduction to distance trail running or walking.
It doesn’t have any major climbs, but this circular route does include hills, varied trails, and takes in many of the local attractions… including the Dallam Deer Park, Arnside Tower, Fairy Steps and Arnside Knott again!
This route incorporates many of the same sections of trail as Silverdale Circuit, but these are done in reverse so it works as a standalone event or in addition to the existing route… it’s incredible how different it feels by going the other way!
It’s a rework of the Heversham Hobble. Having done the 2 over a weekend we’ve decided to split them up and can then use our usual venue of Milnthorpe Cricket Club on Saturday.
Included in race entry fee is a comprehensive route description, timing, fully stocked check point with a wide variety of provisions, and a bespoke medal for all finishers.
Please note we may enforce a mandatory kit list dependant on weather forecast but you should be prepared to carry:
Full body waterproof cover
Minimum 500ml of water
Portable cup for drinks
Map & compass (and know how to use them as this a self-navigated route)
Charged mobile phone
We will have 2 start times, 8:30 for walkers and 9:30 for runners. Everyone should be finished by 15:00 but we won’t enforce a strict cut-off for this.
