The 34th Lowther Lakeland Fell & Trail Run starts at 11.00am in front of Lowther Castle.  Lowther is located 3 miles to the south of Penrith, just to the west of the A6. GR521 240, CA10 2HG.  Registration will be from 09.00am.  The race takes place under FRA Rules and the minimum age is 18.

This scenic route crosses Askham Fell and the Lowther Valley.  It is a fully marked 13 mile route with about 1400ft of ascent. There are drinks at 2 points on the route.  The route has about 3 miles of tarmac and the rest is mostly open country with grassy and gravel tracks, also about two miles crossing rough pasture. 

The route climbs through Askham village onto the fell to Heughscar Hill where you will find a marshall with the first manned SPORTident timing station.  The route turns south and descends to the Cockpit and onwards across the valley of Heltondale to Butterwick. You will get your feet wet when you ford the River Lowther! A stiff climb follows onto Knipe Scar to the most southerly point on the course and the second manned SPORTident timing station.  From here the route turns north across the grassland of Lowther Park to Whale.  A track above the river Lowther leads you to the finish at Lowther Castle. 

Although there are a few short but flattish sections on rough ground, we think that trail shoes will be more suitable than fell shoes and the fastest runners could even consider wearing trainers.  It depends on the conditions underfoot.  You must come to the event equipped with a lightweight raintop and full leg cover which we will ask you to carry if the weather is wet. 

The event will use SPORTident Timing and each competitor will carry a SIAC.  These are contactless timing cards and are attached to your wrist.  You use them to record your visit/time at the 2 timing points and the finish.  They can be hired for £1.50 and collected from registration or you can use your own if you have one to avoid the charge.  PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY SIACS MAY BE USED, NOT TRADITIONAL SI-CARDS.  

Competitors may run with a dog "canicross style" but the dog MUST be on a lead at all times and runners must not allow their dogs to impede the progress of other competitors.  The route passes through fields with livestock, so please be really sensible if you are running with a dog on a lead.
