|paused for breath at 1st Gate? 2nd Gate? I get mixed up with Strava segments|
Interesting route last week. An eight mile loop covering part of the start and part of the end of the Scafell Trail Marathon. We started at Rosthwaite and climbed over to Watendlath, taking the track down into the woods and then steep descent down to the road. Across the road and up to the Derwent Water duck boards where we ran across to meet up with the Cumbria Way path. We then went back through the woods to Rosthwaite. The route was about 8 miles all in. A pretty easy pace as a few of us were feeling a bit tired after the St Bega Ultra at the weekend. This is a great route with a bit of everything. A lovely evening. It started to get a bit dark towards the end so we will need to start bringing headtorches for future runs.
