Derwentwater Trail Race – Sun 6th Sept.

Russell Maddams continued his current busy race program with a fine 4th place in this very popular Lakes trail race. Starting and finishing in Keswick, the race is a 14km circuit along well marked footpaths and bridleways and takes in panoramic views of Lake Derwentwater the surrounding peaks of the Skiddaw and Blencathra range and the northern lakeland fells. Russell was pleased with this time of 54.35 which was over a minute faster than his time in 2007. Tony Hesketh was our only other runner to make the trip, Tony did well in 56th place – from 403 running – with a time of 69.27, which placed him second 0/60.
