Beyond the Lune is the brain child of Stu Taylor a seasoned endurance athlete, completing in some of the worlds toughest multi day endurance running and bike packing events. These 2 trail runs have been designed to test you at your level, social runner, competitor or who knows this could be the first step on your way to completing your first ultra! 

Stu has created two trail running  routes: a 25km and 16km to showcase the beauty of his local area of Kirkby Lonsdale and its surrounding parishes of Casterton and Barbon. Both routes have some on and off road sections.

Both routes start directly from the door step of The Barn home to the brilliant Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery and  delicious Coffee Roasters. At the start of the event you will get a free pastry and roasted coffee, then awaiting you at the finish a pint of one of Kirkby Lonsdale's finest beers! (age dependant)
