10km running route

This more challenging circular route takes you through the quieter parts of Whinlatter Forest.

Starting on the north side and running on forest roads, you'll soon warm up as you climb towards Seat How. You will be rewarded with a fun downhill section where Derwentwater comes into view and as your legs recover you will venture into the south side of the forest.

A second big climb passes through mature conifers, eventually heading downhill towards Revelin Moss. You will then complete a gentle uphill section alongside Grisedale Gill through young broadleaf trees eventually leading you back to the Visitor Centre.
