Please ensure sure you read “Club run information” at the bottom of this page before joining us on any club runs, especially if you are joining for the first time.

Sunday 26th January – led by Chris Curtis

Start in Keswick at the base of spooney green lane.

Up and round Latrigg then right up to the gate on the way to Skiddaw house (the Not Round Latrigg race route).

Sharp left up Lonscale and follow the fence line to the gate at the base of Jenkin hill.

Back down the side of Skiddaw (path or the rough, your choice) then back over Latrigg and through the woods back to the start.

This is good leg training on the ascents and descents but it’s a social run so speed is not important.

The weather is likely to be cold and a blowing even on a mild day so full FRA minimum clothing required please.

Sunday 9th February – led by Luke Armitage
Route TBC
Sunday 23rd February – led by Natalie Hawkrigg
Route TBC
Sunday 8th March – TBC
INTERVALS BOX

No further Interval sessions until Spring 2020. Instead an ‘Intervals Box’.

The interval team have placed a ‘Intervals Box’ hidden at Bowscale tarn. The idea is to encourage members to continue their interval reps up to the tarn over the winter period. When you do a interval session up to the tarn, find the box and record your effort in the notebook. The location of the box is under stone behind large boulder just before the tarn, 1 metre to the left of path.
