Parish Relay


Mostly fast and runnable. The location is particularly stunning on a nice evening.


1:4000 with contours at 2m intervals.

St Bartholemew's Church in Loweswater have kindly allowed us the use of their parking field. Please feel free to make a small donation towards church funds (will collect at the social after the event).: 
Grid Ref: NY 14170 20973
Google Maps: Location

The NT carpark at Scale Hill could also be used - space permitting. (Google Maps: Location).
1. If approaching from the NT carpark then follow the obvious path along the lakeshore.
2. If approaching from the church parking please approach using the public footpaths (via Muncaster House).  Map available on Final Details download below.

Assembly: Close to the gate 100m South of the Pump House on the West shore of Crummock Water (Grid ref: NY 15088 20360).
Start: This will next to assembly. Teams/updates will be displayed at assembly.
Aim to arrive ready to run from around 17:30 with the first leg runners starting from around 17:45.


No dogs on the courses


Updated 28/06
Teams will be made up 3 runners (put together using a complex algorithm). Team lists will be available at assembly. The relay will follow the usual format with each runner completing their leg before handing over to their next runner (only one runner can be out at once). The first team back wins the race (assuming no mispunches).

Courses will be gaffled. They will be approximately 2.5-3k. Height gain – you would struggle to exceed 100m. In reality it will be a fair bit less. Courses are at a technical difficulty that should cater for all runners – regardless of ability. For younger runners there is the option of running a course with a grown-up not as part of the relay.

Please let me know if you want a run by Tuesday evening. I will try and accommodate late entries where possible.

The format for the WCOC Parish Relays 2022 is slightly different to previous years.
The plan is that relay teams will be organized on your behalf - no need to sort out your own team!
A mass start and fast head-to-head racing will still be a feature but with the final outcome less certain.


Courses: Details to follow - but there will be courses suitable for all club members - regardless of age or experience.

Start Times: 

Mass Start 17:45
