Lakeland Trails Cartmel

The gently rolling trails around Cartmel offer lovely views over Morecambe Bay and the harder your run, the more Sticky Toffee Pudding you can eat afterwards.

Starting and finishing at Cartmel Racecourse, the 5K Cartmel Sport Trail, 10K Cartmel Trail Run, 18K Cartmel Trail Challenge & 18K Cartmel Trail Race take you on off-road journeys through some of the most scenic and varied countryside in the Lake District, along a ‘Beauty and Beast’ of a course.

The trails are along waymarked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways, giving panoramic views of both Morecambe Bay and the surrounding peaks. Underfoot conditions are variable with a bit of everything – gravel tracks, muddy lanes and the odd puddle for good measure. There are some good fast sections, but it can be very sticky in places, especially if wet!
