Celebrating (virtually!) 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.
Evidence/proof of distance must be via an app such as Strava (our preferred option), but we'll also accept proof from other activity trackers. An email attaching a screenshot of the app will be required - we won't accept a link to the activity on Strava. You can send multiple screenshots, which must add up to at least 10k.
You must complete 10k BEFORE the event date i.e. between the date you enter, and Noon on Sunday 26th April.
Commemorative tokens will be posted out once all proof of distance has been verified after the event date

As we have had to postpone the 'live' event, we want to keep people active and ideally exploring the Lancaster to Kendal canal while doing it.
How does it work?
One of two ways - you can either get out and do 10k in one, or do it in a number of chunks. Once you've completed the distance, send us the evidence/proof via email, and then we'll post you a special commemorative token (see Jogging Pals social media for more detail on this!).
Ideally of course, we'd love you to do the distance along the canal towpath, particularly the stretch including the Stainton Aqueduct
£1 from every entry fee will be donated to the Lancaster Canal Regeneration Partnership
Please do bear in mind guidelines on social distancing, and you should run from your door rather than drive.
The Canal And Rivers Trust guidance is:
Our 2,000-mile network of canals, towpaths, reservoirs, docks and river navigations remain open, but we strongly encourage people to stay local and strictly observe social distancing measures. As our waterways run through towns and cities across the country, they bring the countryside into urban areas, providing many of us with the opportunity to get outdoors and connect with nature without travelling far from home. So until advice changes, you may continue to use your local towpath to exercise and get some fresh air, but please observe the latest Government guidance on social distancing – do not congregate, keep moving, allow space for others to pass, and be very mindful of moored boats where people will often be self-isolating
