Overview

Welcome to TP: Run Club Lake District, a community of trail runners & adventurers who share a passion for the outdoors. Join us as we inspire each other to push further & explore the wonders of nature together! JOIN THE COMMUNITY. EXPLORE. You come to the Lakes to experience the terrain… and with around 450m elevation gain over this 10km run, you will not be disappointed. We will meet at the Kirkstone Pass Car Park. Heading south where we will be sticking to the road for a short distance, before heading up into the beautiful hills, our first of which being Baystones (487m) at around 3km in. Staying high, soaking up the gorgeous scenery we will then plod along to Wansfell Pike. A relatively sharp descent will follow, taking us down to the outskirts of Ambleside. The last 4km, back to the start point will be a good slog uphill. There is no rush, we can take our time and enjoy each other’s company. DATE: Sunday 24th April MEET: 10:00am START TIME: 10:15am DISTANCE: 10K Run START/END POINT: Kirkstone Pass Car Park, LA22 9LQ TERRAIN: Woodland trail, grassy fields and open fell with a little paved ground BAG DROP: Not available, please only bring what you need. We will start from the car park so you can leave things in your car. Note - there are no other facilities in this car park. WHO'S IT FOR?: Anyone new to trail/hill running or those who have some level experience wanting to gain more of an understanding and confidence in trail/hill running in a friendly group setting

 PACE: This will be a casual run and we will stick together as a group. Average pace will be around 6:00/km but this will slow during the inclines. KIT: Be mindful of the time of year! Please bring the relevant kit needed for a couple of hours on the fells in winter. Although it’s a “lower Fell”, the weather can still be unpredictable. This will be subject to run leaders discretion on the day. SEE RECOMMENDED KIT LIST ON TP WEBSITE 😊. This session is FREE. All abilities are welcome. 
Please note you MUST have a ticket to attend. If you have any questions please DM us on Instagram @trail_pursuit or @tridadathon_tom to speak to your run leader. Thanks - Team Trail Pursuit #TrailPursuit

Trail running for me means seeking beauty in nature, having freedom to explore new places & being resilient mentally & physically. What I find special about the Trail Pursuit community is that everyone is so unique, from different places & walks of life yet we share an obsession for the outdoors which breaks barriers for new friendships.

As someone who primarily road runs in the city, getting out on the trail is my escape. It's more than just fresh air, it takes me to a healthy mental place.

Trail running has always been a form of complete escapism for me; it's exhilarating and challenging in equal measure but leaves you feeling accomplished and like you can tackle anything life throws your way!

Running for me is a daily reprieve from the pressures of daily life. I moved from the road into trail running about two years ago. Hitting the trails gives me a chance to reset my mind and reconnect with body whilst surrounded in beauty and nature.

Losing myself amongst nature on the trails has proven to be a lifeline, by lifting my spirits and improving my mental health. This sense of purpose is so important for me since I've had to reclaim the routes for my own... on wheels.

Trail running makes me a happier person, connects me with a nature, which I really enjoy. I feel wild and free when I'm on my trails 🙃

To me, trail running removes the playing field all together, it removes the boundaries that come from road running and allow you to feel a full sense of adventure and intimacy with the natural world. Going off the beaten path is where I feel alive, free and at my most inspired.
