The Race is Coniston's largest annual community event

The race is Coniston’s largest annual community event and is organised by a small committee from the village. Each year over £20,000 is raised from the Race and this is donated to about 30 local charities and clubs.  Last year £5,000 was raised for St. Mary’s Hospice, Ulverston. A social evening is organised in early summer when cheques are presented to these organisations.
