Sizergh Fell and River run

Nestling amongst the outer folds of the Lake District fells, the area around Kendal is a fell runner's paradise. 

Just a few short minutes after setting off from the hustle and bustle of this busy market town, you can be out amongst classic fell and river scenery. 

You can also walk this route if you fancy a gentle stroll.
