Graded ‘Easy’, this 5km Trail Race is for everyone, from the young to those more mature in years. Everybody loves a ‘Park Run’ and this is KMF’s own version. The 5km is fast and furious from the word go or take it as easy as you like, its your enjoyment that counts!
This low level fast pace race is open to all abilities, come and have a go at a record set in 2017 by Mountain Fuel’s James Appleton or enjoy with all the family.
Head out of Crow Park through a specially designated barrier lane into Cockshot Woods, take some fast turns through the woods to find yourself running along the track next to the main Borrowdale Road. This leads all the way to Calfclose Bay, here you take a sharp about turn to start back along the shores of Derwent Water. Fields and lake shore trails now lead you back towards Crow Park and finally back into Cockshot Woods for the same ‘barrier lane’ finish into the Festival Village and the glory you deserve!

LIt is possible that events and courses at KMF may need to be amended at short notice due to weather issues, water levels, road conditions or roadworks.
By nature, many of these factors are not possible to know well in advance. For each event there are a number of alternative options available which can be implemented at short notice. The organisers and race directors will always have athlete and spectator safety as the highest priority, and within that context will seek to provide the best possible experience. All sporting events would be impacted if the KMF Festival Village has to be closed. In this instance, as long as circumstances allow, all starts and finishes would be relocated to Lake Road and Lakeside Car Park and the events operated as smoothly as possible.
The 5km route is very robust with the main risk factor being flooding. By using a dynamic process of route design we would create a course geared to the weather and ground conditions presented to us on the preceding day and actual day of the race. A bad weather route will be published closer to the event.
