Cumbria Way Ultra run
Date: Saturday 15 September 2018
Cumbria Way Ultra, 15th – 16th September starting at 06:00 in Ulverston, approximately 120 runners. The 73 mile trail ultra race follows the Cumbria Way trail from The Gill, Ulverston to finish at Carlisle Castle. The route will be marked 1-2 days before the event with small correx arrows, which will be removed by the team of Sweeper runners as soon as the final runners pass.
To avoid the runners running through the centre of Coniston, the route will divert from the Cumbria Way trail behind the John Ruskin school and follow the road to the Lake, following the footpath to reach the Coniston Sports and Social Club, which will be used as a checkpoint. The route then picks up the Cumbria Way trail again.
