Jogging Trails in South Lakeland : A Guide to Rural Running Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

  • Information


The South Lakes area of Cumbria has a network of footpaths, bridleways and minor country lanes which are ideal for trail running away from traffic congestion and the pressures of urban life.

This informative guide is an introduction to the endless possibilities for runners and joggers in this unique and tranquil area. An introductory section covers a recent history of the South Lakes area, and the local fell running traditions, in addition to general advice on training techniques and competition, clothing and footwear, sustenance, managing injuries, safety, and health and well-being. The guide goes on to describe thirty five jogging trails spread across the South Lakes area with detailed maps, photographs, and information on terrain, severity, distance and transport.

The trails of between 5 and 10 kilometres in distance are mainly aimed at less serious joggers and runners, with the emphasis on enjoyment rather than competition, but many of the trails can be combined to offer training possibilities for the more committed.
