Lakeland Trails Marathon in Coniston

The most picturesque marathon in the UK. The first off road marathon in the Lake District, the 42,2km Lakeland Trails Marathon Race and 42,2km Lakeland Trails Marathon Challenge is an accurately measured marathon course through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the Lake District. Last year's event was rated "the most scenic trail Marathon in Britain" by Runnersworld magazine.

New for 2012 is the 21,1km Lakeland Trails Half Marathon, utlising the first 15km section of the marathon course as far as Tarn Hows, for those wanting a shorter option.
