There’s still time to join the Windermere Marathon 2019, with the closing date for applications ending on 15th May.
So if you were inspired by the London Marathon, or already booking a package break in the Lake District, sign up today!
When is the Windermere Marathon?
The ASICS Windermere Marathon takes place on 19th May 2019. Starting at Brathay Hall in Ambleside. Standard entry cost is just £47, with applications currently still open.
The Most Scenic Marathon in the UK
As well as a challenging run through the Lake District, the ASICS Windermere Marathon is one of the most scenic in the UK.
The starting line overlooks Lake Windermere and it’s no surprise a large part of the route runs along the water. Participants will run the length of the Lake, before crossing the water and coming back along the opposite side.
During the course expect to pass a number of major landmarks, as you run through Hawkshead, Newby Bridge and Low Wood Bay.
Last year only 7 runners completed the race in under 3 hours, however, each individual participant has their own objective. For some, that means trying to beat a personal best, others just finishing will be an achievement. Many enter in order to raise money for charity, each with their own story to tell.
Even if you’re not taking part, you can still show your support for the athletes. Join the 1000’s of spectators that line the streets, pack a picnic and make it a day out to remember.
Where to Stay for the Windermere Marathon
Hotels and accommodation in the Lake District will be booking up fast for this year’s event. With a last minute package break in Windermere, you can treat yourself to a spa package, including that well-deserved massage.
Here at Windermere Boutique Spa suites, we have 3 spa suites available. However, as part of Aphrodite’s Lodge Spa Hotel, there’s a much wider selection, so remember to check our other Windermere hotels too. The majority of which offer spa suites with their own hot tub.
What’s more, there are a number of health benefits to a hot tub. In particular, helping prepare those muscles ahead of the event, as well as providing much-needed recovery time afterwards. Although if you are booking a last minute package break in the Lake District, we hope you’ve been doing your training!
