Sample Itinerary for the Lakes Fell Running Camp  (based on our 2016 camp)

Friday pm:

Evening run 4.30pm to 5.30pm. 10k approx as a group.

6pm Dinner and Fell Running Legends Talk in Ambleside.

10pm return to Murt.

Sat am:

8am breakfast.

9-9.30am: Morning run on first part of Eskdale route (If you want to suggest a route, we can chat about this tonight or in the week). 8m approx

11am-1pm: Watch start and/or finish of Eskdale fell race, plus picnic lunch out (near course), made by me.

Back to Murt for showers or go for swim.

4-5pm: Late run for those who want a second run. 4 to 6 miles. The rest of the group can chill.

Showers then dinner at 7pm, cooked by me.

Sunday:

8am Breakfast:

9am: Morning run. Different route.

6-10 miles depending on preferences and ability.

12 -1pm: Picnic lunch with whole group. Swim option

Chill time and perhaps some tips on fell running technique from myself or Ben!

2pm: Option of taking the steam train from Ravensglass along the coast or inland to the hills.

6pm: Drive to Woolpacker Inn for meal out.

9.30pm-10pm: Return to Murt.

Monday morning:

8am breakfast:

9-9.30am: Short run (everyone who wants). 4 to 6 miles.

10am: Leave.

NB: There are officially only four parking spaces at the barn, so if any of you are able to lift share,that would be useful. I have worked out some extra parking spaces nearby, so it won’t be a problem however. Just to give you an idea, last year we had people coming from Oxford, Manchester, Bristol, North Devon, Thatcham and Liverpool.

There is a steam train, which goes in to Eskdale, and there are two pubs in the village, which is really close to the barn.

Can I suggest that if you come to Murt first, can you arrive as close to 4pm as possible, to give us time for a short run and shower before dinner. We will have to leave for Ambleside by 6pm. I will be at the barn from 3.30pm onwards.
