Fun Route is Back

Following discussions with the National Trust Rangers we are having to change to our "Fun" course from this Saturday until such time as the weather improves and allows the ground to dry out. All grass areas are currently "out of bounds" to parkrun.

For those who are not familiar with our "fun" route this uses only the footpaths within the main park and uses the full cafe hill 4 times and up to the south car park 4 times. The start is on the footpath above our normal start line and the finish is next to the Boathouse cafe.

Unfortunately this means we are having to ask any parkrunners who normally run with dogs or buggies that until we return to our normal course you will not be allowed to run with them. We apologise for this but there were some near misses on the two way sections of the footpaths last year. This a difficult decision which your core team has made but the safety of our parkrunners comes first.

With safety in mind can I remind folk that parkrun is NOT a race but a RUN. I know we all like to get good times but please be observant and considerate to your fellow parkrunners on the 2 way stretches of the "Fun" route. We will look to have extra marshals at the 2 way sections to help ensure all goes well.

A592 closure January until Easter 2018

Please be aware that the A592 is now closed until early April for work by United Utilities. The section closed is between Beech Hotel and Moor Crag. Therefore runners coming from the Windermere and Ambleside area will need to find an alternative route and to allow yourselves extra time on a Saturday morning. Please do drive safely.




25th November parkrun CANCELLED

Due to this week's heavy rain Windermere has flooded over into Fell Foot. The lakeshore footpath at the south end is currently under 12" water and the runout to the meadow is waterlogged. The muddy gate is also a stream of water running off the road.

We have no option but to cancel this week's parkrun.

Do not forget no parkrun at Fell Foot next week due to the Grizedale car rally using the car parks as a service centre.

Best Regards

Ron (Event Director)


parkrun on 2nd December 2017 CANCELLED

Due to the Fell Foot park car parks being used as a service area for the Grizedale car rally our parkrun on 2nd December is therefore cancelled.

Your nearest alternatives are

Barrow in Furness, Millom and Lancaster.
