This is a new event for Runfurther.  It starts north of the Lake District and mainly follows the waymarked Cumbria Way into the northern Lakes and back out again, so it’s mostly a trail race and should make for good running with flattish start and end sections and loads of climbing in the middle.  It does climb Skiddaw, so you must be prepared for possible rough weather conditions.
