PUMA is proud to sponsor the Lakeland Trails, the UK’s most scenic and inspiring running and walking events. The trail courses are well-marked and takes you along environmentally sustainable bridleways and footpaths through some of the most scenic and beautiful countryside in Britain. Open to all ages and abilities, these events are a great day out for the whole family.
The Lakeland Trails senior events are split into three events to reduce the numbers on the public rights of way. The new 10km Trail Run takes place in the morning at every venue, great for the novice or rookie trail runner. The Challenge sets off first on the longer distance "classic trails" for less competitive runners, ideal for those wanting to take it easy and enjoy the views. The Race sets off an hour or more afterwards, and is for the competitive boys and girls. Both, the Challenge and the Race, follow exactly the same stunning, scenic course. Finally, the Children's Fun Trails take place when most of the senior competitors are back. These short fun runs for children under 12 are all about having a go. Finishers are rewarded with a special medal, and there are spot prizes too.
An exciting and fun atmosphere is guaranteed for spectators and competitors alike while the live music with race commentary and other entertainment all make for a great day out for the family. Click on the event pages on the right or go to www.lakelandtrails.org to register.
