Lakeland Trail Series, Coniston

05/10/2013

On Saturday 5th October, Susan Graham travelled to the Lake District to take part in the Challenge section of the Lakeland Trails Series at Coniston...

Susan last took part in the Coniston Challenge in 2009 and had somehow forgotten how the race includes almost 3 miles of uphill!.. although due to a slight change of route this year, runners did manage to get a nice flattish mile to give them a little warm up before hitting the hard stuff.

The race winds its way up past Coniston YHA and across the fell side, down to Walna Scar car park and then heads nicely downhill through the disused quarries and through Torver. From here, after a really tricky downhill wooded section, it then heads along the lakeside back to the start/finish area.

Susan enjoyed her run, citing the Lakeland Trails series as an excellent way to get an introduction to trail running, being very friendly events which are suitable for all abilities. On the day she was very happy to finish in a time of 2:24 hours which was only about a minute slower than her 2009 time.
