Parkrun – Whinlatter Forest, Keswick! Get fit, make friends, and see the sights. Organised by friendly volunteers, the Whinlatter 5k parkrun is open to all abilities and ages and takes place every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. (just make sure you’re registered and bring a scannable barcode).
Parkruns don’t get much more scenic or beautiful than this. Taking in views of Derwentwater and the surrounding mountains and fells, this challenging trail surface run is a hilly loop through the forest that begins and ends at the main car park.
A few things to note:
- This route is quite hilly, so wear suitable footwear.
- Children under 11 must be accompanied by a parent or appropriate adult.
- You’re welcome to run with one dog on a short, non-extendable lead.
- Always give way to other forest visitors.
