Celebrating the re-opening of the towpath at Stainton Aqueduct, 10k trail run / walk event.
About this Event
Jogging Pals are delighted to be working with the Canal and River Trust to deliver a trail running / walking event to celebrate the re-opening of the Stainton Aqueduct, and celebrate 200 years' since the opening of the Lancaster Canal.
Jogging Pals provide family friendly, social and inclusive events that welcome everyone. You can bring the kids and either walk the route, or jog or run if you’re feeling a bit more energetic – the intention is that everyone taking part enjoys a fun day in the South Lakeland countryside and along the towpath of the historic canal.
The route is flat and, for the majority of the trail, follows the canal towpath. Whilst not smooth tarmac, it is in good condition and is a combination of grass and gravel.
Thanks to J36 Exhibition Centre, we'll be starting at their premises from where the route passes through Millness, Crooklands and Stainton before reaching the amazing Hincaster Tunnel. At this point, participants will turn and re-trace the route back to the start.
You can view the full route at: https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/route/4208490/Aqueduct-10k-route
We'll have a refreshment and loo stop at Hincaster Tunnel, then participants turn around for the return journey.
The full distance is approximately 10k. For those that don't fancy the full distance, we'll have a one mile event, or you can do whatever distance you like (cost is the same for all distances).
Marshals shall be present at various points along the route for anyone in need of assistance.
Registration opens at 8:30am
Walkers start at 9:00am
Joggers/social runners start at 10:00am
Faster runners may start at any time until 11:00am
To keep our younger participants interested and occupied, we'll have a wildlife quiz to do as they go. All participants will receive a commemorative token of the event
