Windermere Marathon off to a flying start!

If you fancy running the ASICS Windermere Marathon this year you'd better enter quickly! A new series of medals designed by a local artist has helped to get their early bird entries off to a flying start! 
Early bird entries to the 2018 ASICS Windermere Marathon are off to a flying start say youth charity organisers Brathay Trust. They believe a new series of medals by a Kentmere artist are helping to attract runners to the event which takes place on Sunday 20 May at Brathay Hall near Ambleside.
Now one of a handful of marathons run entirely within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is described as the friendliest and most beautiful UK marathon. Only 100 early bird places remain.
It’s hilly, breath-taking course, can attract as many as 1,000 runners and the 2018 event will, for the first time, raise funds to help young people struggling with mental health difficulties.
Artist George Grange has captured four scenes along its route which fit together and will be presented to race finishers over the next four years. The silver coloured medals show Brathay Hall, the picture-perfect start and finish line, and the villages of Hawskhead, Bowness and Newby Bridge.

Brathay Trust has been successfully improving the life chances of young people for 70 years. Last year (2016) the charity worked with over 7,000 young people. Their NEW ‘Young Minds Matter’ appeal aims to raise £45,000 to provide targeted support for those struggling with mental health. Brathay says the number of young people struggling with this form of ill health has more than doubled in recent years.
