Now in its 8th year and firmly established in the autumn calendar, the Allithwaite 8 has an enviable reputation as a friendly and uniquely local event. Around 8 miles/13 km of trail and fell and a bit of road, with around 1080 ft/330m ascent showcasing some of the best routes on the gorgeous Cartmel peninsula in the southern Lake District (around 2/3 off-road)

Marshalled and waymarked, the race starts at the Community Centre, Allithwaite (post code LA11 7QJ).
