Scout Scar

Race 1 Scout Scar GR 502 918 The Old Racecourse, Brigsteer Rd, Kendal 

The ever-popular series kick-off race never disappoints. It's a classic 5 mile (or so) blend of fast hilly cross-country on rough limestone tracks with stupendous 360 degree views (for spectators out on the course).  The senior race and shorter junior races all start with a fast charge across the flat field before heading out onto the rough Scar area where the pace settles. Year upon year it attracts a large number of runners from all over Cumbria, Lancs and N Yorks. Junior and Senior races alike can have over 200 starters.

Arrive in good time to collect your number as it's the first race of the series. (see tab left to register online)
