Keswick Trail Race

Posted: Thursday, September 6th, 2012

On 1st of September 2012 four members of Meltham AC competed in the Keswick Trail Race, part of the popular Lakeland Trails series. Nick Thompson, Steve Perren, John Gray and Andy Lang ran the 15K challenge course.

The race started with a flat section along an old railway track but quickly ascended the fell side.

Conditions on the fellside soon became quite boggy and running was difficult…

Runners were rewarded at the top though with fantastic views of the Northern Lake District and a quick downhill finish.

The results can be found here. The next race in the series is the Coniston Trail Race on 6th of October.
