Runners in the Brathay Windermere Marathon raise thousands of pounds to help improve the life chances of children and young people. On May 17th, 2015, the Beautiful Marathon will enter its ninth year as one of the most distinctive marathons in Europe.
Following a course which is a complete circuit of Windermere, England’s largest lake, the Brathay Windermere Marathon takes in Hawkshead, Newby Bridge, Bowness and Waterhead. In 2014 almost 1000 runners enjoyed the stunning scenery around the challenging 26.2 mile course. We are hoping for 1300 runners in 2015.
The Family Fun Day is held in conjunction with the marathon. Spectators and supporters of the marathon, visitors to the area and the local community are invited to Brathay Hall Estate to help support the runners and enjoy a range of entertainment, activities and refreshments. There will be everything from a jazz band, local brewery beer tent, BBQ, high ropes challenge course, canoeing, children’s activities and plenty more to keep everyone busy throughout the day.
