Unfortunately I have made the very difficult decision to cancel Whinlatter 10k. This is due to the landowner's introducing a new, increased payment scheme for independent events taking place on their land. This scheme basically wipes out the viability of smaller events. With the expected entry numbers for Whinlatter 10k, based on past events, it just isn't possible to stage the event, both this year and in the future.
Thank you for your support over the years, Whinlatter 10k was a beautiful yet tough course to tackle, and we enjoyed organising it (despite the midges!).
All competitors have been emailed with details of how to claim a refund for their entry fee minus the booking fee.
Fancy a 10k trail run or Nordic walk through the beautiful Whinlatter Forest near Keswick in the Lake District on a Summer’s evening? Whinlatter 10k is run on the designated mountain bike/walkers trails in the forest which vary from wide stony paths to winding singletrack through the trees, climbing to reach Seat How, giving stunning views across Bassenthwaite and Keswick beyond.
Whinlatter 10k takes place within the boundaries of Whinlatter Forest, Braithwaite, Keswick, CA12 5TW. Whinlatter has unrivalled views across Bassenthwaite Lake, Derwentwater and Keswick and is home to a host of wildlife, from red squirrels to the Bassenthwaite ospreys who nest near the forest from April to August.
Road - From Keswick: Take the A66 west towards Cockermouth. At Braithwaite, turn west onto the B5292 for Lorton. Follow Visitor Centre Sign Posts uphill for 2 miles. Bus - Bus from Keswick, Train - Nearest station is Penrith (25 miles east) on the west coast mainline.
Whinlatter 10k is an approximately 10k trail run, held on the designated mountain bike/walkers trails within the forest. The route will be marked with small arrows and there’ll be marshals at numerous points throughout the route.
