When is the Windermere Marathon?
About the Windermere Marathon
With the stunning backdrop of Lake Windermere, the Lake District Marathon is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque in the UK. The recent London Marathon is well-known for its iconic landmarks, whereas Windermere is all about the scenery.
It’s a challenging yet almost relaxing 26.2-mile route. After all, there aren’t many marathons that run alongside such an impressive body of water. Windermere itself being ever popular among fell walkers as well as those out for a gentle jog. However, there won’t be time to stop and take any photographs.
Unless you’re just a spectator enjoying a package break in the Lake District. Although even then, you’ll want to be keeping your eyes on the race in hand. So why not stay for an extended holiday and visit the local attractions and landmarks.
Likewise, by extending your stay you can always get in some last minute training. All with the added bonus of becoming familiarised with the race map ahead of the big event.
During the course, the route takes in Hawkshead, Newby Bridge and Bowness-on-Windermere. The great Lake being very much the focal point of the race. Unlike some of the other major marathons, this race features specially allocated running lanes.
While there is a fun element to the Windermere Marathon, every runner has their own personal story along the way. For some it’s about trying to become first over the finish line, others just finishing is a triumph.
