Do you think you can Beat the Bull. Here’s your chance! Run the Kielder 10K around the stunning Bull Crag Peninsula of Kielder Water.
If the full marathon is not quite for you, don’t despair you can still enjoy the stunning scenery and join us on Saturday October 5th 2013 for possibly the most Beautiful 10K in the UK (unofficial factoid!)
Start and Finish location is Leaplish Waterside Park. The route takes you off around the lakeside way on a good trail surface, heading in the opposite direction of the ‘famous’ Salomon Kielder Marathon route. You head up and over the Bull Crag Peninsula before rejoining the Lakeside Way and heading along the shoreline of this stunning manmade lake back to Leaplish. You won’t be able to help yourself being transfixed by the stunning scenery as you churn out the miles!
TRANQUIL, PEACEFUL, PICTURESQUE, INVIGORATING, INSPIRING, CHALLENGING, MEMORABLE, REWARDING..but just remember...it’s no bus ride!!!
