    The North Lakes New Year Half Marathon

    Welcome to the North Lakes New Year Half Marathon, set in the base of the stunning Lorton valley.

    If you want to go for an early season PB, complete your first half marathon or just burn off some of the winter festivities, then start your new year on the right foot.​Every competitor receives a hot roll, hot drink, medal and chip timed results Places are once again limited to 400 so make sure you sign up early!

    Whinlatter Canicross Race.

    A new series of canicross races, held in England’s only mountain forest. The perfect location for you to enjoy stunning scenery and a fully marked course on forest roads and trails.

    The route is a five mile course at Whinlatter including 1200ft of ascent. It reaches the summit of Seat How along a mix of forest roads and narrower walking trails with stunning scenery across the whole course.

    Also on offer is a shorter three mile option recommended for those just starting out or looking for an easier run. This equally beautiful route avoids the summit of Seat How and involves just 800ft of ascent. The second half of both routes is identical, allowing all participants to finish together. It is possible to select your route on the day of your event.

    “Two virtuoso musicians playing some of the most startling and original music you will ever encounter. Compelling, exciting and utterly original” says Phil Beer. Adam Summerhayes has been described as a ‘Paganini of the traditional violin’ (fRoots) and his remarkable playing has been lauded worldwide: “Like the direct descendant of the devil’s violinist Paganini” (Badische Zeitung); ‘Astonishing, all-out virtuosity’. (New York Times); “Intoxicating … virtuoso fiddle playing” (The Times); ‘breath-taking violin wizardry’ (stuff.co.nz). This duo, though, is not just about fireworks and virtuosity. Profound and eloquent, epic, haunting and dramatic, Adam Summerhayes’s ‘utterly compelling’ playing (BBC Music magazine) entwines with master accordionist Murray Grainger’s subtly woven tapestries of sound – “Grainger’s accordion with Summerhayes’s fiddle are especially beautiful” (Songlines). The pair play trad. tunes, particularly from the North East, write their own tunes and specialise in creating music in the moment.
