Ladies Introduction to Trail Running Weekends

Next event: 27 - 29 March 2020  |  Lake District


These are exclusive ladies only weekends.

Take a break in the beautiful Lake District where you can get a taste for some beautiful Trail Running. A no pressure atmosphere where you can meet like minded people. You will have a choice of distance between 10-25km, with the option on the day to return to the Hostel where you can relax for the afternoon, or continue with a run leader through some of the most scenic parts of the UK.

If you are already a runner but would like to get off the road and try out the trails, this is for you. Or maybe you already enjoy trail running but would like a guided run where you can meet new people in a relaxed environment.


Dinner Bed & Breakfast in Twin or double rooms.

Includes a 2 course evening meal Fri & Sat. Breakfast Sat & Sun, packed lunch/running snacks on Saturday. Sunday will be afternoon tea in the village tea room.

The Crown Inn Pooley Bridge



Check in from 2pm, meet at 6.30pm where we will gather as a group and discuss the route for Saturday and Mel will answer any questions which you may have.

Inclusive Dinner - 7pm, relax and get to know each other, try not to drink too much....we have some running to do remember.



Light Breakfast 7.30-8.30am

After breakfast you will meet your other leaders who will be supporting the run.

9.30am We will head out on the Ullswater Way.  An undulating footpath following the lake along to Martindale. At around 10k we will be met by a driver with refreshments. You will be able to recharge before setting off again for another 10k. Anyone who feels that the first 10k is enough will have the option to be driven back to Pooley Bridge. Those who continue will run to Glenridding where we will then get the Steamer boat across Ullswater to Pooley bridge. A perfect way to end a day of trail running.   A chance to ask any questions you have, we can take a look at examples of kit back at the hotel.
