Your Itinerary


Arrive at your leisure on Friday afternoon and check in to the picturesque Riverside Hotel centrally located in Kendal and perfectly placed for a run alongside the banks of the River Kent and up to the ruins of the town’s 12th Century Castle. Your Festival tickets will be ready for collection on check-in.

Within walking distance you will find the Kendal Brewery Arts Centre and the acclaimed Basecamp Village, the social hub of the Festival where you can grab a beer, coffee or a bite to eat and enjoy the atmosphere.


Now in its 6th year and listed as one of the top ‘50’ races in the UK the Adidas Terrex 10K Trail Run will be under starters orders in the centre of town at 11am. With a great ascent, jaw dropping vistas, hard packed and grassy trails and even some cobblestones to tackle - you will be welcomed back by the crowds with a town centre finish.

With just a short walk back to your hotel, the Riverside Sanctuary Health Club is a perfect way to refresh before heading off to enjoy the Mountain Running Session. A 2 1⁄2 hour celebration of endurance running in all its forms and glory with top athletes, brands, films and speakers on stage - a sell-out in 2018.

With plenty of places to refuel in the town of Kendal, later that evening you are invited to enjoy the Festival Parties (either the Silent Disco or Ceilidh) at the Brewery Arts Centre...a night not to be missed!


Film is at the heart of the Festival and Sunday provides a great opportunity to see our outstanding programme or book a ticket to one of the other sessions on offer. If a relaxed day is what you have in mind there will be plenty to explore across town and in the Basecamp Village where top outdoor brands will be offering creative insights and demonstrations.

To finish the weekend your Trail Blaze ticket will give you free entry into the afternoon or evening showing of ‘The Best Of Kendal’ featuring a selection of 2019 award winning films screened across seven venues.
