Starting and finishing at Staveley Recreation Ground (LA8 9LN), the NEW! 5km Kentmere Sport Trail, 10km Kentmere Trail Run, 17km Kentmere Trail Race and 17km Kentmere Trail Challenge courses follow well marked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways, taking in panoramic views of most of the southern Lakeland fells. The trail climbs out from Staveley above the Kentmere valley, before returning along the valley itself past idyllic tarns and through ancient woodland, climbing Reston Scar before the descent back into Staveley village. Underfoot conditions are quite variable and there's a bit of everything! Short sections of tarmac, grassy footpaths, stony bridleways with some stiles to climb over near the end, all add to the unique nature of the event.
