The marathon route consists of 4 laps and takes advantage of the stunning promenade walkway. The route then ventures into a trail section through Barrow's old Slag banks which are remnants of the old steelworks that were once in operation.


From here the route then heads back along the coastal pathway towards the dock museum.
