Each route has been carefully graded to indicate terrain and difficulty so that the runner can select a route that suits their ability or aspirations for the day. Routes range from 5 miles to 21 miles, and include classics such as the Helvellyn skyline, Langdale Horseshoe, Borrowdale and Scafell Pike direct.

There is a useful introduction explaining the history of trail and fell running in the Lake District, along with advice about the best bases for a trail running holiday, equipment and adapting to running off road.
