Rab Skiddaw Vertical Run


Friday 20th May | 4pm

8.8km Run with 997m of Elevation.  

Aim for the skies on this exciting race to the summit of Skiddaw, the 6th tallest mountain in England. Starting at the iconic Moot Hall home of the Bob Graham Round take it easy as you wind your way through the Keswick streets to the bottom of the climb, then take it up a notch (or maybe two) as you take on the vertical sprint to the summit.

The race will be live streamed with a screen into Market Square from both Little Man summit and Skiddaw summit where runners will be greeted by a razzmatazz finish!

Flares will be set off once the first runner reaches the summit. In reply ‘answering’ flares will be set off from the Market Square. This exciting new event is sure to get your festival started with a real bang!
