An ultra trail running event based in the vast expanse of Kielder Water & Forest Park, Northumberland… from lakeshore to heather moorland, beautiful trails and superb scenery. Date: Saturday 2nd April 2022 Distances: 82km, 50km & 32km route options Kielder Water & Forest Park spans 600 square kilometres and is home to the largest forest in England and the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. The area features mile upon mile of purpose-built trails including forest walks, woodland singletrack and heather clad moorland. An ideal location for an ultra race and the perfect way to explore this amazing area. With two distances of 82k and 50k, plus a 32k option to choose from there is something for everyone. All routes will be fully marked so no navigation experience is necessary. 82k and 50k Route Highlights: The course incorporates a unique blend of some of the more remote areas of the forest and also the main attractions. This is a superb route whether you are looking to complete your first ultra or an experienced runner. Starting and finishing at Kielder Castle, this 50k loop encircles the whole of Kielder Water. The route features sections along the tranquil Lewisburn Valley, Kielder Viaduct, Bakethin Reservoir nature reserve, Bellingburn Valley and sections of the Lakeside Way multi-user trail and the blue graded bike trail. The route also climbs onto open moorland to offer stunning panoramic views over the whole of Kielder Water and across to the Scottish Border.
