The Salomon Trail Running Festivals series will kick off next weekend, giving runners the chance to choose from the Pentlands in Edinburgh, Edale in the Peak District and Box Hill in Surrey on separate weekends.

Visitors can opt a leisurely guided run or timed 10km, 20km or 50km races, as well as get involved with workshops, talks, yoga sessions and kit demo opportunities.

The Edinburgh runs on May 18 will take place on rolling hills just outside the city centre and, as well as the ongoing related activities, attendees will be able to watch a screening of a Salomon film at a nearby venue.

The Peak District location on June 1 is based in Edale, from where runners will have direct access to the Pennine Way.

The third event on June 8 will be based at Brockham in Surrey, giving visitors the chance to part in the runs and races in the Box Hill area.

New ultra around Lake Windermere

A new 45-mile trailrace encircling Lake Windermere this September has been launched.

Labelled as "a journey around the beating heart of The Lake District.", The Lap race will take place on September 7.

With a generous 24-hour cut-off, it will take in track and trails, plus smaller sections on fells and unavoidable stints on quiet country roads.

The low-level route around England’s largest lake is designed to be a great introduction to trail running.

Starting with anti-clockwise in 2019, The Lap’s route will alternate each year and cover 2500m of ascent and descent.

Entries are available now at https://www.thelap.co.uk/
