Kendal Mountain Festival provides a race experience for the whole family. Each November, the town celebrates its heritage and beautiful location bordering the Lake District by coming alive with enchanting music, film and delicious food.

Headlining the events is the Adidas Terrex 10KM trail run on Saturday November 18th, which circuits the surrounding countryside. Trail lovers will be thrilled to take in stunning views as they traverse the grassy and muddy trails around the town.

The route is a loop that starts in Kendal town centre, immediately tackling the Tour of Britain finishing ascent up Beast Banks. The trails begin towards Scout Scar, gifting breath-taking views across Lyth Valley. After a drink station at 6km, runners return via the golf course before descending back to Kendal.
