Trail26 Grizedale (Loop 2 - marathon)

Running Route

13.33 mi
2,103 ft
The course consists of 2 separate loops. The first loop is completed by both the Trail 26 and Trail 13 competitors. The second loop is for the Trail 26 competitors only. The course lay out makes it spectator friendly, as your supporters will get to see the marathon runners at the half way point as they pass back through the Visitors Centre, which also acts as the start and finish. The route on the second loop is bit more technical underfoot with more uneven terrain, boggy areas, open fields and some small sections of road. It will be all worth it when you finally catch sight of Lake Windermere. The Grizedale trail running event can be classed as “lumpy” (Trail 26 code for “it’s a tad hilly”). There are significant climbs on both the Trail 13 half marathon course and the Trail 26 marathon course to test even the most hardened of trail runners.
