D5: Helsington Barrows
12 August 2022
Largely open terrain, with a good track network and some small patches of trees/vegetation.
Helsington Barrows is an area of limestone to the West of the Town of Kendal. There are areas of exposed limestone rocks but no limestone pavement, this makes running potentially quite fast, with care. A good track network exists as a result of the area being very popular with local people due to it's accessibility. The climb involved in the courses will be moderate.
Parking and asembly will be held on the old racecourse on the Eastern edge of the area. This will be suitable for all types of vehicle and has good access to the A591, allowing competitors a quick getaway after prizegiving on the final day.
