Lakeland Trails in Keswick

07/09/2016

Starting and finishing at Fitz Park in Keswick last Saturday, the Derwentwater Trail took in panoramic views of Derwentwater as well as the surrounding peaks of Skiddaw, Blencathra and the northern fells. 

Underfoot conditions were tough in sections with steep ascents and plenty of bogs to break up the rhythm.

Prior to the event, part of the course was relocated due to December’s Storm Desmond. This involved an extra 100m of climbing through logging tracks and increased the distance to 16.5Km. With a challenging, alternative route now in place for the first 3km, runners enjoyed a mix of wading through the wet conditions, speedily splashing and walking sections of the slippery single track pathways due to over 632 runners taking part in both the challenge and race on the day.

The sounds of live music and commentary led runners towards the finish line where a carnival atmosphere distracted from the cold and damp day in the Lake District.

Skye Sarahs was first to complete the trail challenge in 1:59 followed by Andy Dickson in 2:00. Joanne Johnstone was next in 2:07. Saty Burns and Jacqueline Wilson were to follow but were not recorded at the finish as the timing mat antenna became submerged in mud and water because of the deluge. Anne MacFarlane and Sean McGleenan finished the trail race in 1:35 and 2:03.

Each club runner was delighted to have completed the trail given the tricky but rewarding terrain.
