The iconic ‘Round the Houses’ mid-week race features a 5.3 mile circuit of Keswick with the ‘lung busting’ Manor Brow climb in the middle of the course.
Come along and see if you can beat the long standing record set by Kenny Stuart (1989 – 26min 22sec) and matched by David Swanston (1994 – 26min 22sec), or the equally impressive time set by Laura Park (2008 – 29min 40sec). Whether seasoned sprinters, club racers looking for an interesting championship race, visitors to Keswick or fun runners you will receive a warm welcome in this unfamiliar race distance. The race starts and finishes in Fitz Park, ravaged by floods in 2015 but now fully functional.
Due to the popularity of last years race we have added online pre-entry* and chip finish timing . We recommend online entry* to avoid the queues and to keep our computer volunteers sane. You will receive lots of encouragement from our team of marshals and the Keswick locals throughout this race.
