Welcome to the new home of the Great Cumbrian Run website.
This year the run will start and finsh at The Sheepmount Athletics Stadium in Carlisle. The flood damage that prevented the race finshing there last year has been repaired and the facility is now open and ready to host this great event again - here's to a mud free 2018!
Better operate over 250 leisure centres across the UK and Ireland. We are a Social Enterprise and a not-for-profit charitable trust which simply means that our profits are put back into the facilities we run and the local community - Because you run, local children can enjoy school holiday activities. Because you run, more people can learn to swim.
So why not start now? Get entered and tomorrow the count down to the 7th of October 2018 begins and YOUR half marathon.
Leaving this years dedicated start/finish area at The Sheepmount Athletics Stadium the race route will take runners past the iconic Carlisle castle and into the city before heading out into the countryside. Taking in the picturesque villages of Cumwhinton, Weatheral and Scotby the return will also pass the Cenotaph in Rickerby Park, through Bitts Park to finish on the track at The Sheepmount.
