The Brimstone Hotel at Langdale may be a place to experience ultimate luxury, gadgetry and pure unadulterated relaxation but the hotel realises where it is based so adventure is never far away.
Take the level of outdoor activities and adventure to what ever degree knowing the Brimstone Hotel is there for route ideas, kit and gear and most importantly, post adventure recuperation!
Langdale has been the home of running for many years thanks to the organisation of events by Great Langdale Road Races. The events have now been taken over by Brathay Challenges who organise the Brathay 10 in 10 event, 10 26 mile circuits of Lake Windermere. The views are simply stunning in the Langdale Valley with the next events being the mighty half and full Langdale Marathons in October which attracts local fell runners and visitors alike. More information including entry details and forms can be found here, https://www.brathaychallenges.com/
Looking for something a little less challenging as a half or full marathon? The Langdale Active website is the place to find running routes for all abilities and requirements as well as on the water adventure and cycling routes. https://www.langdaleactive.co.uk/run.html
Brimstone are committed to the outdoors 365 days a year in the form of the Arc’teryx Bootroom. Guests of the hotel can borrow any of the vast range of the latest and super high performance Arc’teryx walking gear for use during their stay. If you’ve forgotten some kit when packing or the weather turned out to be finer than forecast (or more lightly a little damper and cooler in the Lake District!), there’s no need to miss out on enjoying the fells. Brimstone also have snacks and drinks sorted for guests too both for when out and about and also post run/walk/cycle in The Reading Room.
