Cumbrian Way Ultra
Date: Saturday 19 September 2015 - 6:00am
an ultra trail running event which will be held on Saturday 19th/Sunday 20th September 2015. The event starts at Ford Park, Ulverston and follows the Cumbria Way trail to finish at Carlisle Castle. The event will start at 06:00 on the 19th and the runners have until 09:30 on the 20th to finish, visiting 4 checkpoints along the way at Coniston Sports and Social Club, Sticklebarn Tavern, Crosthwaite Parish Rooms, Keswick and Caldbeck Parish Hall.
The route will be unmarked and there will be a team of sweeper runners following the final runners who will ensure that all gates are closed and any litter accidently dropped by the competitors will be collected. This will be the 2nd running of the event and we envisage relatively small numbers ie < 60 runners.
