Starting and finishing at Hawkshead, the Hawkshead 16km Trail Race follows a circuit along well marked and marshalled footpaths and bridleways, taking in panoramic views of Lake Windermere and the surrounding peaks of the Coniston Hills, the Langdales and most of the Lakeland fells. The route takes in the infamous, mile long, near vertical, killer climb of the “Coffin Trail”!
Good on Philip Whettlock for even thinking abbot racing this 10 miler, the words ‘Coffin Trail’ says it all.
Philip finished 77th in a speedy 1:35:55. Well done, great stuff.
