We want to encourage more young competitors and will be offering reduced entry fees for those under 25 on the day of the race
The Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon is ideal for younger runners, from age 14 upwards, as it takes place after most exams and before the beginning for the summer holidays. We offer one course, Bedafell, specifically for teams that include one junior and one adult., , The younger runner will be between 14 years and 18 The older runner will be 21 or over and a parent or “accompanying adult”. This course has a handicap arrangement, based on the age of the younger competitor. Harter Fell, a slightly harder course, can also be entered by a runner over 14, in a team on the same basis but this is an open event with no handicap applied. Carrock Fell, is slightly harder than both these courses and can be entered by a runner over 16, in a team with parent or guardian 21 or over.
