Cunswick Scar

Cunswick (GR498 930), Kendal.

Just over 5 miles for the seniors with around 600' of climbing. A fast undulating course across grassy Cunswick scar. Registration and parking is at Boundary Bank just outside Kendal (see GR above). The senior race starts with a small climb across fields, over the bypass and up to the large cairn on the Scar....no need to study it too closely - you'll be back!. Over the top and along the edge of scar. Follow the flags until you get to a sharp turn through a kissing gate to the right. Down a steep little path and through the woods.......out across the fields and back into more woods. The pace will be fast as you head across the fields past Cunswick Hall to the bottom of Gamblesmire Lane. A bit of a slog up the lane (it's steeper than it looks) and on to another grassy track.  Up to the large cairn again (I said you'd be back) and the fastest sprint you can manage to the finish.
