"Cumbria's friendly Running Club"

Virtual Races >>

Welcome to the Howgills Virtual run events!

These are a variety of run events for people to enjoy in the current situation when we have to be mindful of social distancing and having no formal events taking place. In accordance with FRA and EA guidelines we cannot at the moment offer any formal Club events but wanted to support our local running communities and draw in people who might be using their daily exercise time to get out and try a bit of running. Anyone taking part in these Virtual events is doing so entirely at their own volition and has responsibility for their own safety and must be carried out in accordance with current UK government guidance on exercise and travel.

We must emphasise that you should run responsibly and within the Law.

If you are in Kirkby Stephen do the races Kirkby Stephen Races and if in Sedbergh do the Sedbergh Races.

If you are anywhere else Please Do Not Travel and wait for a race near your home- there will be more next month.

If you can not get to the Sedbergh or Kirkby Stephen routes then please use the final option and create your own route from home.

If there are gates on route, please use had sanitizer before and after touching a gate

The events on offer are:

  • A 10k run using the Kirkby Stephen 10k event route (senior members only)
  • A 5k Sedbergh run using a well known mainly off road route
  • A 5k Kirkby Stephen road route using quiet local roads we often use for the Hobblers training
  • A 5k Tebay/Orton route
