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 (1989 – 26min 22 sec) 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 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 in 2015 but now full functional.
Due to the popularity of last years race we have added pre-entry*. We recommend online entry (KAC Round the Houses 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. **Online Entry AVAILABLE now**
