    Whinlatter Canicross Race.

    Whinlatter Tails Canicross Race

    09:00 -12:00
    01-09-23
    Whinlatter Forest
    CA12 5TW Braithwaite, Keswick, UK

    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.
