Brathay Windermere marathon and half marathon is taking place on Sunday May 22nd 2016. After the previous 9 year success of the full 26.2 mile Brathay Marathon, the organisers have added a half marathon, a brand new event for 2016. This marks the 10th anniversary of arguably the most beautiful UK race of this length and the reason why it is referred to as “The Beautiful Marathon”.
The half marathon will surely not disappoint, a 13.1 mile route through the beautiful village of Hawkshead, onto Esthwaite Water, returning with views of the iconic Langdales and the surrounding fells. The closing date for entering either event is Friday May 20th 2016.
Whether its pre or post race, either full or half marathon, some rejuvenation to the legs is a must and why its worth choosing accommodation with a pool and even better the healing properties of hot bubbling water and saunas.
In the heart of Ambleside in a peaceful location is The Old Vicarage Bed & Breakfast. Hidden away under the garden terrace is a 9 metre heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna, the only one of its kind in the area within a B&B. The leisure facilities are ideal for relaxing and gathering thoughts pre and post race.
Unlimited, free use of the pool, sauna and hot tub is available to all guests at The Old Vicarage. For more information and to book online visit http://oldvicarageambleside.co.uk/
