Whinlatter Forest parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 22/06/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

Having cycled over Whinlatter Pass the day before, what better way to warm up for the hardest day of our Coast2Coast in the Pennines than to return to Whinlatter's parkrun. By some measures the hardest parkrun in the UK being net uphill with an ascent of 674ft compared to Lanhydrock's 453ft, it starts with a steep gravelly descent, before you head up on the forest trails, and then take a path down to repeat one section twice, before the short downhill finish.
