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 race.
Come along and see if you can beat the long standing record set by Kenny Stewart and equalled by David Swanston, or the equally impressive time set by Laura Park. Whether seasoned sprinters, club racers looking for an interesting championship race or fun runners you will receive a warm welcome in this unfamiliar race distance. The race start and finishes in Fitz Park, ravaged by floods last winter but now full functional.
