Haweswater Half Marathon

After a year’s break we were again fortunate enough to be able to host our annual event in March 2022 and the sun shone on the 293 runners who competed. We would like to thank everyone who attended and helped out to make it such a successful event.

Plans are ongoing to host the 2023 event, which will be on Sunday March 5th.

The course starts in Bampton Village and follows an out and back course along the shores of Haweswater in a remote and dramatic mountain valley. On the day you will get a unique mug with piping hot tea and a piece of delicious flapjack supplied by Traybakes Ltd of Penrith.

We also host a junior run at the event for children aged 4 to 16, which is 2.5km run entirely on the road. Entry details will be posted here in due course.

Entries for 2023 will be available from late summer 2022.
