DAY 1

SUN 16 JAN: LAKE DISTRICT

MEET: 09:30am
START TIME: 09:45am
DISTANCE: 9K Run
START/END POINT: United Utilities Legburthwaite Pay and Display car park at the south end of St John’s in the Vale. Post Code: CA12 4TW

The ‘Two Riggs’ social 10K run shares the course of a classic winter series fell race organised by a local running and climbing shop in Keswick. It boasts stunning views of the local fells from excellent singletrack trails and bridleways that meander through centuries-old farms, hidden churches and open fellside.

The ‘Two Riggs’ are the names given to High- and Low-Rigg, which stand at 357m and 277m tall respectively, giving a challenging but accessible route for those either new to the trails or who crave a short, introductory taster of Lakes-style fell running.

The route starts and finishes at a convenient car park at the southern end of St John’s in the Vale, following a farm track through Sosgill Wood and alongside St John’s Beck before climbing steadily up towards St John’s Church and the approach to Low Rigg. A turn south from here brings lumpy running to pass back by the church and a short, steep climb to the highest point on the run, High Rigg.

Great ridge-like running passes Paper Moss and the tiny Rigg Tarn before a fun, frantic descent in the final kilometre on awesome grassy trods brings a gallop back to the cars!

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.
