Over 1000 trail runners from all over the UK, along with overseas visitors from Holland, Germany, Belgium, France and Ireland will be heading to the tiny village of Cartmel in the Lake District this weekend, home of the world famous Sticky Toffee Pudding…

Lakeland Trails event release

The opening 2013 Lakeland Trails event at Cartmel Racecourse takes place this Saturday, 16th March.

The Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding Company will be providing individual puddings at each of this year’s Lakeland Trails’ events, which are to be handed out to participants as part of their reward for reaching the finish line. At every 2013 Lakeland Trails event, competitors will also receive a specially designed event T shirt, a digital photo memento and a branded goody bag.

Lakeland Trails is now in its 10th year organising trail running events in the Lake District and in 2012 it attracted over 10,000 participants across 8 different venues, most of whom come from outside of the county. Their annual trail running series aims to cater for all abilities and their courses range from 10K to full marathon distance. Last year the Lakeland Trails won the prestigious national award from Running Fitness for best Off Road Challenge event.

Lakeland Trails are committed to preserving the environment and work closely with organisations such as the National Trust and the Lake District National Park Authority to ensure that the courses have a minimal impact on the local surroundings. All of their trail running routes are planned over environmentally sustainable trails and bridleways within the landscape of the Lake District National Park.

The fabulous Batala Lancaster samba drumming band and singer/songwriter Pete Lashley will be preforming live throughout the day, and there are trade & retail stands, food and drink stalls, kid’s entertainments including children’s Fun runs and a live commentary with MC.

The event is supporting the local Allithwaite Playing Fields charity involved with marshalling the event, along with other regional and national charities and thousands of pounds will be raised for these charities from the event.

    After you complete the Sticky Toffee Trail, come and try Scotland’s Muddiest Race at Craufurdland. The Muddy Trials is a 5km and 10km through the woods and fields, streams and ditches on Craufurdland Estate. Starting from the front of Craufurdland Castle its quite a site.
