Run the Edge Virtual | May 2021

Covid-19 may have temporarily suspended play on the Lake District Coast for those unlucky enough not to live here but we can still do it virtually. Copeland is Cumbria's hidden coast. It's a mecca of beaches, Roman ruins, cliffs, rivers and sweeping valleys leading to England's highest peak, Scafell Pike.

In May, take on a virtual running challenge to discover the coast. Each week you'll receive an email with the challenge instructions that will test your endurance over a variety of distances.

Weekly Challenges

WEEK 1: 10K

The classic race weekend distance. You'll have a week to complete the distance so maybe break it in to two 5Ks but if you want to be added to the leader board it needs to be in one effort.

You'll receive challenge instructions the day before the weekly challenge starts.

WEEK 2: HALF MARATHON

Our next 13.1 miles takes us further north up the coast past the sweeping beach at Silecroft, Selker and Tarn Bay before heading inland along the south bank of the River Esk towards Muncaster Bridge.

You'll receive challenge instructions the day before the weekly challenge starts.

WEEK 3: MARATHON

The final week is the big one. Most sensible people will partition this but if you're able, grab a socially distanced friend and get out on to the trails. From Muncaster Bridge the trail passes Ravenglass, Sellafield and the beaches and cliffs at St Bees before descending to Whitehaven at the finish.

You'll receive challenge instructions the day before the weekly challenge starts.
