Saturday 9th September 2017 – 11 am start

A one-off charity fundraiser for St. Mary’s Hospice, Ulverston. This is a road half-marathon along the beautiful Cartmel valley. A revised course from the South Lakes Half-Marathon last run in 2012, this time starting and finishing at Cartmel Priory School. It means all the ‘undulating’ bits come early on rather than nearer the end! Entries coming soon via SI Entries or enter on the day (emailing allithwaiterunningclub@gmail.com to confirm entry before would be appreciated). £10 entry for all – all proceeds to charity.



Usually, the Sands Chase takes place on the first Sunday of the year. It’s a race which anyone can win: start a 10 km ‘undulating’ route in your own time, the aim is to arrive back at midday. No watches/timing allowed apart from knowing your starting time. A great handicap race as long as you have a good estimation of your pace! Sweepstake entry – winner takes all.
