Sam Richardson was on her travels this weekend, this time over the lake district.
Whilst on her travels, a chance arose to run the Staveley Kentmere 10km Trail (which actually turned out to be 11.6km…but who’s counting).
This trail race 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, and some stony bridleways with stiles to climb over near the end; these all add to the unique nature of the event.
Sam finished in an official time of 1:15:00. Nice work Sam!
