Great Langdale St Georges Day 10 K

Run as part of our Lake District weekend away in April, club members stay in  local B & B's or Youth Hostel and enjoy the delights of Lake District hospitality. The 10 K route is an undulating one from the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel along the road to Elterwater and back. Remarkably, considering the condition of the runners we have won the team event several times, the ladies in 2007 and men in 2008 and both in 2009 and 2010.
