I am in the Lake District this weekend, acting as cheerleader for my two sons who are mad enough to be cycling in the Fred Whitton Challenge tomorrow (112 miles over every single pass ). I also have to do my long run tomorrow (about 60-70 minutes). I went on a two hour walk today to try and suss out a suitable running route. The scenery was glorious and we saw buzzards and peregrine falcons, but what climbs! There is no way I could have run where I walked. Can anyone who knows the area recommend a nice flattish circuit of around 4 -5 miles, maybe around one of the lakes? We are staying near Ambleside.
