5km route: Be directed out of Crow Park by our friendly marshals and run South along the shores of Derwent Water to Friar's Crag view point, run around the sharp point and head East along the hard pack managed trails to run through the calming woods of 'The Ings'. Once out of the woods, you are taken back to the lake shores and South again to Calf Close Bay.
Now take a sharp turn North and take the roadside trails back to Cockshot Woods. This section could be fast & furious and places might be won or lost! Turn West and enter Cockshot Woods for the penultimate loop before heading back for the final loop around the back of the Keswick Mountain Festival in Crow Park for all the glory you deserve!
The Festival Village is located adjacent to The Theatre By The Lake close to Derwent Water in Crow Park.
