A town centre start and finish. The route heads out of town taking in the Tour of Britain finish climb up Beast Banks (on the black stuff) before heading out off road on to Scout Scar. A sharp turn right along the escarpment will give some amazing views across the Lyth Valley. The run along the escarpment is punctuated by crossing Underbarrow Road - here we will have a drinks station. The run then heads back across the golf course and descending the steep streets in to the back of Kendal.
