A new series of canicross races, held in England’s only mountain forest. The perfect location for you to enjoy stunning scenery and a fully marked course on forest roads and trails.

The route is a 5 mile course at Whinlatter forest with 1200ft of ascent. It reaches the summit of Seat How, is a mix of forest roads and narrower walking trails but has stunning scenery across the whole course.

Also on offer is  a shorter 3 mile option, which is recommended for those just starting out or wanting an easier run. This is still a beautiful route, with 800ft of ascent, but avoids the summit of Seat How. The second half of both routes is identical, allowing all participants to finish together. It is possible to select your route on the day of your event.
