adidas TERREX Trail Run

Saturday 23rd November 2024 - 11am

It's time to start looking ahead to the annual adidas TERREX Trail Run.

Take part in a thrilling trail run visiting the local landmarks used by the local running community. The route is pure trail running with lots of great ascents, jaw dropping vistas, some hard packed and grassy trails and a great town centre finish.

The adidas TERREX Kendal Mountain Festival Trail Run starts on closed roads climbing out of the town centre up Beast Banks. Its steep start utilises the same roads that the Tour of Britain cycle race finishes up. After 3km the route starts weaving along the limestone escarpment of Scout Scar with amazing views across Morecambe Bay and the Lyth Valley. The run along the escarpment is punctuated by crossing Underbarrow Road, where there will be a simple water station. The run continues towards Cunswick Scar before turning back across Kendal golf course and descending the steep streets and ginnels back into the centre of Kendal.

Distance: Close to 11K due to slight route amendments around the course especially on the golf course.

The Trail Run is organised on a not-for-profit basis where all profits from the event are donated to the crucial voluntary work of Kendal Mountain Rescue. Last year's event raised over £10,000 (a huge thank you to all those who took part!).

Thank you to Ourea Events who organise this event. Tickets are on sale via their website.
