Mountain Trail Running at it's Best
A trail marathon incorporating England's highest peak. Based from Keswick the route follows beautiful lakeshore trails, wooded valleys to spectacular high mountain trails, incorporating some of the most dramatic rock scenery in the Lake District.
We are pleased to announce that the Salomon Scafell Pike Trail Marathon will be included in the 2023 Golden Trail National Series.
"The Golden Trail National Series returns in 2023, now with an additional 2 races in The Netherlands adding another level of excitement to the existing 4 UK races"
The Golden Trail National Series (a derivative of the Golden Trail World Series), aims to bring the strongest and most ambitious runners of off-road racing into a single national "super circuit". Through its original formula, the Golden Trail National Series gives participants the opportunity to confront themselves at a "local" level with many of the national and international athletes of trail running and skyrunnning, with the opportunity to be offered a place at the GTNS Grand Final in Italy.
The event is to be held in conjunction with
the Borrowdale 21k Trail Race
Borrowdale is described as "The most beautiful valley in England" and a trail runners dream. Combine this with a route over Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain & you have a truly spectacular course.
