The hike starts at The Langholm Estate, South West of Keswick on the banks of Lake Derwent. This dramatic location is surrounded by incredible views of the best loved Lakeland fells. From here the route joins directly onto the Cumbria Way, one of Britain’s most popular long distance footpaths which passes through some of the Lake District's most famous and spectacular scenery. This takes us through Langdale and Borrowdale valleys and approx 10 miles over the stunningly wild Stake Pass which climbs to just over 1,500 ft. The views either side of this pass are breathtaking and well worth all the effort. The Cumbria Way continues along Lakeshope Paths, ancient lanes and paths at the bottom of steep sided valleys. Finally it takes us through little Langdale and into Coniston - our finish line.
This is a challenging event and is recommended for those with experience of long distance walking.
Parking & registration will be at Coniston Sports and Social Club. From here, participants will be bussed to the start line at The Lingholm Estate, Keswick. The event will end at Coniston Sports and Social Club.
Parking in the local area is very restricted and not suitable for all day event parking. We have therefore organised a specific car park for Race for Life Hike participants at Consiton Sports and Social Club, for a charge of £3 for the full day. The car park is directly adjacent to where the coach will collect you in the morning, and where you will finish in the evening.
Please bring along £3 in cash and put it in the collection bucket on arrival.
Due to the nature of the terrain and the mountains, this event is not suitable for wheelchair users.
It will be possible for spectators to see you before you board the coach which takes you to the starting point, and to greet you at the finish. For those spectators who would like to meet participants at the three support points en route, we can provide details of these locations on the morning - please ask at the Enquiries Marquee.
